As part of Edmonton Poetry Festival 2014, Edmonton’s creative writing collective #yegwords invites you to a gathering of the venerable Dead Poets Society. Our stage is open to anyone who wants to come and honour one of the fallen poets of this world or to anyone who wishes to share a piece of work that is inspired by apoet who has since shuffled off this mortal coil. Join us for an afternoon of beautiful words and refreshments as we create a bridge between this world and the next. A bridge of words. A bridge of love.
This is a FREE event at the very cool Ortona Room in the Ortona Armoury. 9722 102st. There will also be refreshments and people are encouraged to stand on top of their chairs.
#yegwords (Words with Friends) was founded by Edmonton poet Kasia Gawlak and writer Jason Lee Norman as a way to bring together all the members of Edmonton’s writing community through fun and unique events that celebrate the written word and provide support for up and coming artists in the city.
