The Cascadia After Party

This might be the most electric event each year at the Cascadia Poetry Festival. Poets of all different backgrounds, academic, street poets, slam poets, conceptual poets, sound poets, nature poets, &c. get their chance to read ONE POEM on the stage. The edition of the After Party this May in Nanaimo promises to be a memorable poetry reading, and the party atmosphere does not hurt.theafterpartyposter (poster pdf)
