An Invitation to the
April 30-May 3 2015
Dear Poets, Writers and Friends:
I and many friends have been working to organize and to bring the 2015 Cascadia Poetry Festival to Nanaimo-- a truly grass roots festival and cultural investigation of the bioregion we know as Cascadia, stretching from Cape Mendocino, CA to Mt. St.Elias, Alaska.
We have four days of some of the most amazing poets from Cascadia and one Griffin Award-winning poet/political activist who can help us understand more deeply the place in which we live and how to negotiate the challenges inherent in this time of whole-systems transition. Robert Bringhurst, Brenda Hillman, Sam Hamill, Susan Musgrave and Barry McKinnon are among the heavyweight poets who you can hear, converse with and share a drink and discussion about the poetry of here.
You can read your own work at Living Room, take a workshop from our esteemed poets and attend the late night (party!) programming led by one of the up & coming curators in Seattle's poetry scene. Meet your neighbor poets, transcend boundaries and understand the deeper autonomy of nature herself and the unique culture of this place.
The festival lineup and schedule is here:
You can get free gold passes and many amazing perks by donating:
projects/cascadia-poetry- festival-nanaimo-2015-apr-30- may-3 ... Apart from the perks, donations of $40 or more will also include a gold pass if you can make it to the festival!"
