Vancouver Poetry Crawl Rules!

What a day.  I couldn’t make all the events, but those that I did were, without exception, very talented folks.  Geoff Nilson read from his new chapbook We Have to Look, Shannon Rayne read several published pieces, Elee Kraljii Gardiner read from her brand-spankin new book, Serpentine Loop (out now from Anvil), and Jennifer Zilm read from her new book Waiting Room (BookThug).  We were also treated to new poems from Leah Horlick, and Cecily Nicholson took over Artspeak with her phenomenal poems and voice.  Already looking forward to next year, and hoping that organizer Kevin Spenst is doing well after a health scare…
