POETRY IS IN THE EYE OF THE BEHOLDER
Thursday, October 27, 7pm – 9pm, 88 E. Cordova
Where do the mind’s eye and poetic heart meet? To celebrate their 9th season, the Thursdays Writing Collective will explore the overlap between words and images and they invite you to join them. Guest Jordan Abel, a Nisga’a experimental writer from BC, will read from his highly visual and critically compelling work, followed by writing prompts and open mic. Bring your pens and notebooks for this event of live reading and writing. Thursdays Writing Collective runs free, drop-in creative writing classes at Carnegie. After nearly nine years as the director, Elee Kraljii Gardiner has passed the creative torch to Amber Dawn, a writer and teacher living in the V6A. For more info: www.thursdayswritingcollective.ca
