Event Description

Joanna Streetly is the inaugural Tofino Poet Laureate and has lived in Clayoquot Sound for 30 years on various islands, remote cabins, boats and floathouses. She is the published author of four books, including Wild Fierce Life: Dangerous Moments on the Outer Coast (memoir) and This Dark (poetry).

John Donlan’s collections of poetry are Domestic Economy, Baysville, Green Man, Spirit Engine, Call Me the Breeze, and Out All Day. He is an editor with Brick Books, and was the 2012–2013 Barbara Moon Editorial Fellow at Massey College, University of Toronto, the 2014–2015 Writer in Residence at Saskatoon Public Library, and the 2016–17 Haig-Brown Writer in Residence in Campbell River.

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.
