Literature: Guerilla Poetry Series

Join Commercial Drive poet Warren Fulton
for the GPS (Guerilla Poetry Series)

According to Fulton, GPS is "a poetry reading event held in public venues, that takes poetry out of the cosiness of the coffeeshops, the guarded security of chain bookstores, the safe asylum of the university's ivory towers & the other pampered & protected sanctuaries that act as secure havens for poetry & poets, & brings poetry out into the light, out into the fresh air, to revitalize it, presenting poems to the people, accessible to the great unwashed masses, the multitudes just waiting for something to happen, the general populace paralyzed by the monotony, the predictability of the everyday, day after day...

"We will offer an eye-opening wake-up call, through vivacious verse, poets/spoken word artists sharing their words, gifts, their insights, their observations, opinions, etc... on sidewalks, in barbershops, in laundromats, in front of libraries, in public parks, at bus stops, in touristy areas of interest, in shopping malls, grocery stores, bowling alleys, post offices, etc..."

These happenings happen each & every Sunday in & around the lower Mainland of Greater Vancouver, BC
at 3:00 PM
every SUNDAY

This Sunday:
meet at the corner of Robson & Burrard
in front of the building that once was home to the Vancouver Public Library & is now home to HMV Canada
& BC CTV
