Dynamism in Diversity: Calgary’s Poetic Scene: The Now Version 

Creative poetic expression can’t be pigeonholed by genre or method, and, somehow, Calgary is a hotbed of cutting-edge talent, whether it be the Godmother of Spoken word, Sheri-D Wilson; the latest in wild experimentalism by Braydon Beaulieu; the continued and relevant formalism of Juleta Severson-Baker; or the unpinnable maverick, Richard Harrison. Join us at Shelf Life Books for a invigorating discussion about today’s poetry and the varied nature of poetic creativity.
