what are you doing the week after thanksgiving?

The Canadian Festival of Spoken Word happens October 11-15 in Vancouver. For 5 nights and 4 days we will have performance poets and stoytellers from across Canada, the US and other places, all sharing their talent in a celebration of spoken word.

Here's the website:

Festival passes are now available at Magpie Magazines on Commercial and Duthie Books on 4th. They cost $55 for all five nights - poems for a song! Individual events are priced on a sliding scale, $12-15 for the first four evenings, $15-20 for finals night on Saturday October 15.

I'm helping out with volunteer coordination. If you would like to help, please get in touch (there's a link on the website). The schedule is almost full, but there are still jobs to do. We also need people who live in Vancouver who can host poets in their homes for a few days, and people with cars who can do a pick-up or drop-off at the airport.

It's going to be the most amazing show.

question: who is you favourite poet?
