Event: Edmonton Poetry Festival and Poetry Slam

Where: Multiple Venues, Edmonton, Alberta
When: April 16 – 23

The Edmonton Poetry Festival celebrates poetry in all its forms. It gets people from across the Edmonton area involved as creators and audiences. It 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. Publishers, writers’ organizations, community organizations, schools and literary groups get involved. It aims to stimulate the growth and quality of work created and performed by Edmonton area artists, and brings in national and international artists to inspire, entertain and educate. This year’s (2017) theme is “Horizons”.
