Getting From Seattle to Nanaimo

The 3rd Cascadia Poetry Festival is coming up April 30-May 3 and the Nanaimo Local Organizing Committee has been working their asses off. I am convinced their work will pay off. You know you can read your own work at the daily Living Room session? Consider attending the fest and experiencing a part of Cascadia not everyone experiences. Gold passes for the entire weekend are a measly $25.

How to get there from Seattle you ask? Here is a pdf download of directions. Or:

From SeaTac Take Link Light Rail to the International District station. On 5th, the street right there, you can get a Bolt Bus to Vancouver. https://www.boltbus.com/

The bus route ends at: 1150 Station Street, Vancouver, BC. Take a cab to Dunsmuir St at Cambie St. The 996 or 999 bus also leaves every three minutes. One there take the West 257 Express to Horseshoe Bay and walk on a ferry to Nanaimo.

The After Party

Saturday night (5.2.15) at 10:30PM in Nanaimo at the 3rd Cascadia Poetry Festival, the After Party.

Read one poem and get off the stage. Slam poets give way to sound poets and experimental poets hear from academic poets and the occasional nature poet thrown in. Your humble narrator is host.
