Randy Liboiron poses with a compilation volume of Valley writers that his work is published in.

Poets share limericks and free verse at local library

From free verse to limericks, poetry of all styles was represented

Multi-talented poet, writer, musician, DJ (and butcher!) Randy Liboiron was just one of the local poets who shared an evening of rhyme and reason at the library last Tuesday night. Liboiron read  published work from  a  compilation volume by Valley writers titled Out of the Warm Land.

From free verse to limericks, poetry of  all styles was represented with content that was thought provoking, touching and sometimes downright hilarious.

“I’ve been writing poetry for about 20 years ,” said Liboiron. “This is a great opportunity to get out there and share your  work. It’s always nice to have new ears to bounce things off.

The valley is home to many authors and poets, so venues where they can gather and share their work are always popular. VIRL will host its next open mic night in the Cowichan Lake Branch of the library on June 5th, the first Tuesday of the month from 6:30-8 p.m.

All are welcome to participate by reading some of their own work, a favourite piece by another poet or just sit back and enjoy an evening of the spoken word.
