Growing a Poetry Community in Selkirk!

Even before we teamed up as a mentorship pair through Creative Manitoba’s Careers in the Arts Program, hometown artist extraordinaire Julie Stevenson and I have been working to establish a poetry community in Selkirk, Manitoba. Beginning with the Holiday Alley Winter Festival Poetry Slam and continuing with the Selkirk Poetry Slam, I’ll be facilitating a FREE workshop in town to offer space to those looking to build experience and confidence in writing and sharing poetry!

Following the workshop, folks will be encouraged to join us for the next Selkirk Poetry Slam event at the Mighty Kiwi, and share what they’ve created! Details below:



A poetry writing and performance workshop for all experience levels!
