Poetry in the Capital

Don't forget about Poets Without Borders on April 30. Poetry month may end but poetry never stops as the calendar shows.

On May 9-10 we have the Re: Reading the Postmodern, a Canadian Literature Symposium. It will have panels, keynotes, and readings with an impressive group of people including: Robert Kroetsch, Frank Davey, Christian Bök, Dennis Cooley, Christine Stewart, Stephen Cain, Gregory Betts, Louis Cabri, The Max Middle Sound Project, and Andy Weaver.

The Haiku Canada Weekend will be May 16-18, 2008 at Carleton University. More info on registration is at the Haiku Canada site. There will be book launches, workshops, presentations and renga and more. To get idea of what to expect in 2008 check out what William J. Higginson shows on a site he made of the Haiku Canada conference 2007.
