Winterverse – Sun Jan 28

Stroll 2018 Winterverse v3


Winterverse is upon us…pull out your poems of frosty fractal finery and share winter’s wisdom or wickedness! Join us for a special Sunday Haven with  scheduled readers and a winter themed open mic!

Sunday, January 28th at 2pm Audreys Books (10702 Jasper Avenue)

All are welcome!

Submit to the Magpie Chapbook!

2017 Stroll Call for Magpie Poems

Do you have a poem about or featuring magpies?  Magpies are tough, resourceful, beautiful, a bit rough around the edges and a perfect symbol of Edmonton. Markus Eyman and the Stroll of Poets are curating a chapbook of magpie poems. We need about 15 to 20 poems and the chapbooks will be hand sewn. We will also need nimble-fingered volunteers, preferably from among the contributors, to help construct them. Contributors will each receive a free copy but the chapbooks will be a fundraiser for the Stroll of Poets.

If you have a poem you wish to submit, please email it, as a word document, to markuse@connect.ab.caDeadline to submit is November 30, 2017.


Dead Poets’ Haven Returns!

Dead Poets Haven 2017 v2

Come, celebrate Halloween early at a very special Haven event…if you’re not afraid. Bring along a piece written by, or inspired by a dearly departed poet. The format will be entirely open mic.

Everyone is welcome Sun Oct 29th from 2-3:30pm at Audreys Books.

Remember, a good metaphor never truly dies and adjectives are forever!

On the Wing – 2017-18 Haven Season Launch!

Haven 2017-18 Launch v5

Is it a bird?  Is it a plane? No – it’s the Stroll’s new season swooping in!

Join the flock for On the Wing at the Upper Crust Café (10909 86 Ave) on September 18 at 7 pm. Bring a poem to read or just come to listen and find out what the Stroll is hatching for the coming months.  (Hint: there may be magpies.)

Whatever branch of poetry you like to nest on—whether you’re a fledgling or a super-power poet—you’ll find a friendly community and birds of a feather at the Monday-evening Haven reading series. See you at the arrivals gate!
