Reading – Robert Bringhurst & Jan Zwicky

It was a full house as Wendy Morton and her Planet Earth Poetry series presented Robert Bringhurst and Jan Zwicky at the Black Stilt Cafe.

The Open Mike that opens every reading allows newer poets, such as UVIC student Stephanie Warner, a chance to practice their craft.

  1. Don,
    Thank you for the superb photos of the night. Your poetic eye, caught the magic. Ah, poetry.
    Wendy Morton

  2. Thanks Don for these lovely photos. Great lighting! Everyone looks so profoundly connected to the poetry, which was wonderful
    By the way that’s Stephen Price sitting on the floor in front of Carla Funk.

  3. Thank-you for your lovely photos of the evening.

  4. Wouldn’t have missed it!! Bringhurst and Zwicky at the mic, and an audience packed with my favourite poets: Wynand, Lilburn, Price, Morton, Pelman, Levin, Porter and Funk. “Open the door. Sunlight and singing. All that we may ask.” Zwicky.

    Keep “bringing” it on, Wendy.
    Susan
