Get Poetry Buttons
The Envoi Poetry Festival may be over, but we still have some Get Poetry buttons available on request. We are exploring some opportunities to discuss books related to the festival presentations.
Poets Dead or Alive
The Envoi Poetry Festival will feature poems on this website by poets who have gone to the bright writing studio in the sky, and those still celebrating every day above ground.
What the Poets Are Saying – Ted Dyck
“Violinmaker’s Lament, the song-cycle, however, arguably turns out to be the very model of everything that performance poetry might aspire to – a seamless blend of song, music, drama, and spoken word that, by paying full attention to the unique qualities of each genre/mode, creates out of them something far greater than the mere addition of their qualities”
What the Poets are Saying – Joan Crate
“Envoi Poetry Festival 2015 brought together an incredible line-up of Indigenous and Other voices in a great diversity of form: everything from pure poetry to panels to performance set in personal, natural, innovative, musical, rural, theoretical, future, twisted, urban, colonized, imagined, residential, and political environments. In short, Envoi 2015 was high calibre *#whoosh+bam&^slush$%boom#* and stimulating.”
