A Celebration and Exploration of the New Generation of Canadian Poets
The Vancouver 125 Poetry Conference is a four-day poetry conference that will take place from October 19-22, 2011. The conference is focused on the new generation of poets which we have defined as poets who published their first book after 1990. The conference is presented in partnership with the Office of the Poet Laureate of the City of Vancouver, The City of Vancouver, Simon Fraser University’s Writing and Publishing Program, The Vancouver International Writers Festival, The Vancouver Public Library and the Listel Hotel. The conference will bring poets together from across North America for a landmark exchange of ideas, poetry and poetics.
