Winter Warm Up: Versefest

trifork icicle
Baby, it’s cold outside but it’s warming and the week takes the form of poetry. And what’s hotter than that? (Cuba.) Shhh. Who asked ya? Sassafrassing-rheutorical-question-answering-mumb…

But seriously, such an impression constellation coming out at Versefest. It starts tonight with Paul Tyler, Suzanne Buffam, Dennis Lee, Shauntay Grant and Afua Cooper.

The following day it’s Sepideh, D-Lightfull, Festrell and Elle P, Helen Humphreys, Christian McPherson, Gregory Scofield and Rachael Simpson.

4 days of almost 3 dozen more performances come after that. Amanda’s written a primer on performers with links to interviews and videos.

Wondering what to see?

$50 for a festival pass. Do it all. (Bring your own popcorn.)

becomes absurd.” ~ Anthony Hope
