Poetry goes Swish

Poetry goes Swish

Poetry is as old as the sea and the notion of beauty itself. Long before mobile chit-chat, poetry was the way we shared edgy stories and more profound understanding; just ask Shakespeare. It’s still a way of measuring our epiphanies and our rites of passage.

To celebrate National Poetry Month three BC poets will read by the sea: Janet Vickers, Gabriola Island poet with a new book, Impermanence, Heidi Greco, previous Surrey poet-in-residence, an expert at seeing the extraordinary in the daily grind; and Gibson’s new bardette, Marion Quednau, the 2012 Canada Writes Poetry People’s Choice. 

The reading will take place on ursday, April 18 and admission is free.

It will be hosted at Swish (309-287 Gower Point Road, Gibsons). Doors open at 6:30, so grab a seat overlooking the harbour, and enjoy a surprising tour of the senses. is event is sponsored by the Canada Council, and e League of Canadian Poets.
