It’s time for another Covert Povert happening, poetry on the fly, where it is least expected! Please join us for the low-tech performance of “Call Me The Name I Call Myself” by Mary Ann Moore. Don’t be late because you may miss it!
Time: 2 p.m. (until 2:10 p.m.)
Date: Friday, October 14
Venue: The open lot at the end of Prideaux Street by the Millstone River in Nanaimo. There are some concrete curb-like things for seating or you can bring your own lawn chairs – and umbrellas if necessary.
What are the Covert Poverts?
A loose-knit, self-defining group of local poets who stage collaborative poetry happenings in unorthodox locations (vacant lots, alleys, bridges…) advertised only through the cybervine – email, twitter, facebook. Like raves, but for poetry. This time, the loose-knits are: Mary Ann Moore, Kim Goldberg, Kim Clark, Leanne McIntosh, David Fraser, Rie Okamura and Gordon May.
Who is a Covert Povert?
Whoever considers herself one.
Who can organize a Covert Povert happening?
Whoever has a collaborative poetry project looking for an audience.
Who cooked up all this craziness?
2 Kims (Goldberg & Clark)
Mark your calendars and pass it on!
