Cascadia Poetry Festival Bout

Marmot Bout Poster

The local organizing committee in Nanaimo is working hard to make the third iteration of the fest, April 30-May3, 2015, a huge success. They have created a poster for one of the lighter events at the Festival, the Marmot Bout. Named for an alter ego of the emcee, Graham Isaac, that sprung up at the last bout, THIS bout looks like it will be at least as fun as the one staged at CPF2 at the Spring Street Center last May.
