The 2019 Festival is Live!
It’s live, it’s happening, it’s blowing up. The 2019 Edmonton Poetry Festival begins in a scant three weeks and we want you to be there! Check the schedule page for all the event listings and ticket links, and definitely swing by the authors page and take a gander at all the beautiful people who are performing at the festival. We’re super proud of this lineup – our poets are gonna rock it!
The festival features a mix of free and ticketed events. Ticketed events often sell out, so check that schedule page and get your tickets early! We’ve also got a host of workshops where you can hone your writing and editing skill:
- YouTube, On the Other Hand – Learn how to make content that people want to see and read. With Alexis Hillyard.
- Eggshells and Bad Yolks: Embracing Vulnerability as Editors – A workshop about embracing the hidden potential of vulnerability in your editing practice. With Peter Midgley.
- Home and Away: Writing Our Lands – Creating your own word-hoards for the places you live and the landscapes you carry within them. With Jenna Butler.
- Music In Poetry With Arleen Paré – Understand musicality and how it affects the word. With Arlene Paré.
Workshops are super popular and are limited in their capacity. We suggest you get a move on if you want to participate!
We’re looking forward to seeing you, our authors are looking forward to seeing you, and the words of the poets are looking forward to reaching your minds and hearts. Join us, won’t you?
