This Sunday, July 14, c’mon down to the lower dam at Colliery Dam Park (Nanaimo) at 2:00 pm with a poem to share. Bring a poem inspired by the outdoors, Colliery Dams Park, Vancouver Island forests, or preservation of green spaces.
It’ll be a “flash mob flood of poetry,” says organizer Meldy Wilton.
Contact Meldy if you want to read/perform your poem or spoken word piece:
Email: firstname.lastname@example.org, or phone: 250-754-8369 to leave a message.
RSVP is appreciated but not essential in order to read. Just get yer lyrical butt down there on Sunday!
Everyone is welcome to participate and share a poem. No prior experience necessary.
Nanaimo’s historic Colliery Dams Park is at risk of being destroyed by city council this summer.
(Mark your calendars for another Dam Poets event next month, August 10, at Harewood Activity Centre from 12:30-2:30 pm. Contact Meldy to sign-up to read or perform acoustic music.)
