Arc Poetry Magazine Spring Launch: Tribute to Diana Brebner

April 29, 2022, 8:00 PM10:00 PM EDT

Join us for an evening of poetry and music. In the Winter 2002 issue of  Arc Poetry Magazine , the 1st Annual Diana Brebner Prize winner was announced. After 20 years of administering this award for an exceptional poem by an Ottawa-based poet not yet published in book form,   Arc  97 looks back at the history of this prize and to the legacy of the late Diana Breb­ner, an award-winning Ottawa-based poet who was devoted to fos­ter­ing lit­er­ary tal­ent among new, local writers.
In partnership with Qu’ART Ottawa, this event will feature readings by John Barton, Anita Lahey, and previous Brebner Prize winners Dessa Bayrock and Sneha Madhavan-Reese, alongside special guests Allure Ensemble.
PLEASE NOTE: Proof of COVID-19 vaccination (double vaccination plus 14 days) will be required for all guests 12 years of age and older to enter the venue. Once inside, masks are required and reduced capacity will be in place to ensure social distancing can be maintained.  
Most people park for free at the Supreme Court of Canada on Wellington St.
Ticket holders unable to attend in person can request access to the livestream.
