Books will be for sale, with raised funds going to those in need of nourishing locally grown foods.
Delighted to be part of “Fresh Local Poetry” this Saturday from 11:30am to 2:00pm at Trout Lake Farmers Market as part of Vancouver’s Poetry in Parks Project… I’ll be one of several “free-range poets” on hand to create poetry and to welcome folks to create their own poems. Thanks to the City of Vancouver Parks Board, Vancouver Public Library, and Vancouver Verse Poet Laureate Rachel Rose for this great initiative…
Honey, Hives and Poetry: A Summary
Dr. Mark Winston’s succinct summary of our collaboration during last month’s wonderful Honey, Hives and Poetry event at the Vancouver Public Library:
“…Renee and I were stoked by the evening to grow the bee/poetry interface, and hope to write some new work and evolve our collaboration into a multi-media performance with music and other poets.
And we aspire to inspire, by offering opportunities for those who don’t consider themselves poets to dip their toes into language and vocalizations that express the inestimable insights that bees can bring to our human world.”
Looking forward to this unique collaboration with Mark L. Winston, and honoured to be part of this event with Elee Kralijii Gardiner from the Thursday Writing Collective and of course, the esteemed Rachel Rose, Vancouver’s Poet Laureate.
Thanks to Vancouver Public Library, the SFU Centre for Dialogue, the Canada Council for the Arts, The League of Canadian Poets, and Hives for Humanity for making this wonderful event possible… Hope to see you there.
Happy to be reading at my neighbourhood public library!
