In a few weeks I’m off to Toronto for a small poetry tour. If you are also in Toronto, I would love to see you.
Tuesday 4 November: The Art Bar Poetry Series
Black Swan Tavern, 154 Danforth Ave, Toronto, ON M4K 1N1
The longest-running poetry-only event in Canada.
I’ll be one of three feature poets (there’s also an open mic).
Wednesday 5 November: Wordspell
Free Times Cafe, 320 College St, Toronto, ON M5T 1S3
WordSpell’s mandate is to have an open, inclusive space for female and female identifying individuals to feel comfortable on stage and off.
I’ll be the feature performer! There will be at least one other poet, and an open mic.
And not only that, but the Free Times Cafe serves Jewish food. After my performance you can find me behind the mound of cheese blintzes.
Saturday 8 November: Toronto Poetry Slam
The Drake Hotel, 1150 Queen Street West, Toronto, ON M6J 1J3
TORONTO POETRY SLAM is a twice-monthly spoken word competition, where the judges vote on each poem presented. This ain’t your grandma’s poetry!
The feature is Ian Keteku. My appearance will actually be determined by whether I get there soon enough to sign up for the slam, or the open mic if there is one, but I hope to perform!
If I add anything more, I’ll update this page.
