This event, organized by Ilona Martonfi, is particularly exciting because we’re only invited to read 1, maximum 2 poems, not exceeding 30 lines each. The brevity of the readings makes for a swift, staccato night–perfect for those who tend to get bored at literary readings (you know who you are).
I look forward to reading with James Dunnigan, with whom I read last time. He is a young poet and student at McGill University.
I’m also pleased to see Ian Ferrier once again. We performed/read at the same Nuit blanche festival, a few years back, at the Yellow Fish Art Gallery.
And, as always, I’m curious to hear the other poets/performers.
