Important World Poetry Update for summer and fall!

By worldpoetry on July 10, 2010 - 10:36pm

Dear Honoured Poets and Supporters,

Welcome to another World Poetry Update. We have had another action-packed year.

Highlights were the World Poetry Gala, the life celebration of Li Bai with our first international guest, Dr. Hadaa Sendoo from Mongolia, as a presenter. Dr. Sendoo is our World Poetry Ambassador to China and Mongolia. Thanks to all our wonderful partners and great media coverage, the event was an outstanding success.

We continue another year with the World Poetry Café Radio Show. We now have 25 countries that listen on a regular basis.

We also presented a moving tribute to Vera Manuel with our partners, the Aboriginal Writers Collective, among many other WP events.

Personal news:
Alejandro has a new book coming out, published in the US.
Ariadne is working on the third draft of her novel, and is also doing a book of dream poems called Love Poems to the World. This has been an interesting experience.

Here is a calendar of coming events in the summer and fall, with a peak into the future:
• July 28th 6:30 pm World Poetry Night Out at the New Westminster Public Library (our gracious hosts and partners)716-6th Avenue (Auditorium Room) with hosts: Ariadne Sawyer & Anita Aguirre Nieveras
Featured talk: Montreal Performance Poetry Method.
