Just a note from what’s happening in Poetry in The Comox Valley,
We have started Poet’s Pub Night in The Comox Valley Region to create, share, and celebrate poetry . We meet on the last Monday of each month at the Cornerstone Taproom on Fifth and Cliff. These evenings are in the spirit of fun and camaraderie that birthed the lyrics of people like Robbie Burns and Robert Service. October evening was titled The Dead Poet’s Society (Halloween theme) where we shared works from our favorite dead poets and then wrote on the spot and shared our spells, chants, and words of wisdom. Our November night is called Winter Blues where we share our favorite blues in poetry and then chase them away with on the spot works from the heart and the bottom of the beer mug. All poets, lovers of poetry, and anyone else who wants to have a good time, are welcome.
