Local Poet Sjodin to Helm Courageous Words Stage


Vancouver’s newest and wildest Canada Day party – the Fearless Festival – is proud to welcome local poet and artist, Leanne Sjodin onto the Fearless team as host and organizer of the Coop Radio "Courageous Words" Stage.
Set to run from 4-7pm on Sunday, July 1st at the Radio Station Café (Columbia and Hastings) and broadcast simultaneously on CFRO 102.7fm.
"Leanne has a passion and poetic aesthetic which I think really compliments what we are trying to do here with Fearless," said festival coordinator Steven Duncan. "I knew when she accepted the position that she’d bring with her interesting writers and great energy. It will be exciting."
To find out how to perform at the Courageous Words Stage please contact Leanne at lanicobb@telus.net or call 253-8468.
