Event Description

These two poets, who work both in the written and spoken forms, met in Wanaka on New Zealand’s South Island a decade ago and have been friends and mutual supporters ever since. Laura Williamson, born in Quebec and raised in British Columbia, has spent twenty years writing herself into the stories and landscapes of Aotearoa New Zealand, while still keeping a compass on home. Liz Breslin, now also of New Zealand, writes back beyond her birthplace in the UK to her roots in Poland and Ireland, as well as keeping a satirical eye on the here and now. Writing their roots, Liz and Laura have developed voices as distinct as their accents, yet both continually return to a similar question – what, and where, is home?

The Planet Earth Poetry reading series is a launching pad for the energies of writers and poets established and not. Between 6:45 and 7:00, put your name in the hat to read at open mic. Planet Earth Poetry acknowledges with respect that we read and write on the traditional territories of the WSÁNEĆ (Saanich), Lkwungen (Songhees), Wyomilth (Esquimalt) peoples of the Coast Salish Nation.
