Edmonton Poetry Festival

Poetry is a source of energy, entertainment and joy shared by all societies. The Edmonton Poetry Festival celebrates poetry in all its forms. They get people from across the city involved as creators and audiences. Doesn’t matter what age you are, what culture you come from, or whether you fall for slam poetry or jump at reading the classics.
Featured poets this year include Katherena Vermette, Christian Bok, Kimmy Beach, Shawna Lemay, Vivek Shraya, Brandon Wint and many more.
