The ground is prepped for the sonic and popping word combs of Edmonton’s next generation of poets! The Stroll of Poets invites you to the sixth edition of Fresh Verse where we again profile poets under the age of 25. We’re looking forward to featuring 8 poets who will each have a five minute reading. We’ll also have a two minute open mic. The event is open to all!

$5 at the door for coffee, tea and snacks

It’s eye-to-eye and word-to-word-year 12 of Edmonton’s famous Blinks. As part of the Edmonton Poetry Festival, it’s a night of 30 second poetry and the friendliest stare-down you’ll ever be part of – whether you deliver a poem or come for the vibe.
Monday, April 23, 2018; 7:00 pm
The Aviary (9314 – 111 Avenue)
It’s free to attend and free to read. For more information or to sign up, visit the Edmonton Poetry Festival website.
