Press Release

Cascadia Poetry Festival Affordable Workshops

Four fantastic workshops (only $60 each!) will be happening at Vancouver Island University where many of the main events for the festival are being held. You do not need a festival gold pass to sign up for a workshop, but you will probably want a pass for all the readings, performances, panels and after party events (only $25.00 for the Gold Pass. Workshops are priced separately.)

As Brenda Hillman points out, “In Berkeley that’s the cost of a side order of toast!”
