David Fraser and Kim Goldberg packed an hour-long feature on the new Changes Radio show, Poetry Matters, with info about next year’s Cascadia Poetry Festival (and other poetry events) here in Nanaimo. Listen to the podcast here. Our confirmed headliners for the festival include Brenda Hillman, Sam Hamill, Susan Musgrave, Robert Bringhurst and David McCloskey (“father of Cascadia”). Full list of confirmed poets is here.
The Cascadia Poetry Festival has a focus on Bioregionalism and how poetics, geography and cultural history co-inform each other. We’ll have a Small Press Fair too! The first 2 festivals were in Seattle.
