The Deep in Cascadia Poetry Retreat is coming up soon! It is being held in Cumberland at the Masonic Hall from Thursday, September 6th to Sunday, September 9th.
There will be two evening readings by participants on Friday and Saturday which be take the form of poetry bashes…meaning more readers on stage for a shorter time. Libations will be available so it should be fun.
A wonderful group of poets will be reading. some of them quite well-known. There will also be a presentation on Saturday afternoon by a climate scientist, Dominick DellaSala. He is the current President of the Geos Institute.
Admission is by donation.
The Cascadia Poetics Lab is also looking for any volunteers who would be willing to help out at this event. For more information about the retreat or to volunteer, contact them through their website: www.cascadiapoeticslab.ca.
