Here’s a little poetic project you may have an interest in. Check it out!

The Edmonton Poetry Festival is collaborating with Arch Enterprises on an exhibit of visual art and poetry for the gallery in the foyer of the Stanley A. Milner library for the month of April, National Poetry Month.

The task for poets is to create poetic responses to the visual art selected for the display.

The exhibit opens April 1, 2011. The official opening ceremony will be the evening of Friday, April 8, 2011. At that ceremony some of the poets involved will have an opportunity to read their work. These verbal and visual artworks will remain on display through the week of the Edmonton Poetry Festival, April 25-May 1.

Poets are invited to contact Gary Garrison at or 780-908-6292 to express their interest in working on this project.

Time is short. The deadline for expressions of interest is Friday, March 18.
