Kwantlen Poetry Project Events usually take place on the unceded and traditional lands of the Kwantlen, Katzie, Tsawwassen, Kwikwetlem, Stó:lö, Musqueam, Semiahmoo, Tsawwassen and Qayqayt. Despite us not gathering in the usual way, this must be acknowledged still.
Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, we know social isolation is hard. We want to stay connected. Our events continue online. There will be a link given to those on the attending list on the day of the event. We will meet via Zoom. Please be patient as we’re still navigating the world of online events.
Come witness the brilliance of our feature poet or sign up for one of our 12 open mic spots.
