Calling all Rhymin’ Simons

If you’re a poet the Cowichan Lake Branch of the Vancouver Island Regional Library invites you to come out and share your talent.

If  you’re a poet (and the public don’t know it) the Cowichan Lake Branch of the Vancouver Island Regional Library invites you to come out of the closet and share your talent.

On Tuesday, May 1, from 6:30–8 p.m., the branch will open the floor for budding poets to share their stanzas, verbalize their verses, and launch their limericks. Branch staff will host this open mike poetry night to give local poets (and wannabes) a friendly venue to come out and share their work.

Poetry reading events like this have maintained their popularity throughout the ages. From the ancient Greeks, to the genteel afternoon soirees of the Victorian age, to the beat poets of the 50s and 60s, poetry is still very much alive and well.

So come on out and share an evening of spoken word. Everyone will be welcome to share a verse or two and enjoy the variety of talent our area has to offer. Refreshments will be served, but please bring your own coffee cup to keep the Styrofoam pile to a minimum.

Be it lyric, rap, or sonnet, there’s a verse with your name on it,

Strut your stuff and share a stanza, at our first extravaganza!

For more information call the branch at 250-749-3431.
