I have the grand honour of taking the stage with 19 other Canadian poets at the 2015 International Festival of Authors and NOW Magazine‘s Battle of the Bards. *SUPER GAH*
Myself and 19 other poets will read our poetry for up to 5 minutes and attempt to *wow* the jury of judges and entertain the crowd at The Harbourfront Centre in Toronto, ON.
The winner gets a spot at the International Festival of Authors this fall,and an ad in NOW Magazine! How utterly amazing!
Thank you Meghan and Marty at Black Moss Press for submitting little old me…as well as my poetry comrades Bruce Meyer and Keith Inman.
Of course, I’ll send out a message to share my experience. Right now, it’s all elephants in my belly and boa constrictors in my guts. But – I’ve Hadfielded (prepared) my poems, timed myself, practiced over and over…so, I have to trust that the words will work their magic…and promise myself to be joyful no matter the outcome!
