Another Wonderful Festival

October 18, 2011

The Word On The Street Vancouver was a fantastic, fun-filled festival once again this year! Attendees enjoyed a wide variety of free events, including author readings, live performances, workshops, and more.

Our expansion to three days was very successful, and some wonderful new partnerships were forged with Carnegie Centre, Banyen Books & Sound, and Historic Joy Kogawa House.

The main festival day was every bit as successful. In spite of gale force winds, the majority of programming persevered. Poets even had the wonderful opportunity of reading for their audiences aboard the Poetry in Transit bus, a more intimate alternative to the Poetry Tent. Attendees who braved the weather were rewarded with the excellent events of the day. We really appreciate everyone hanging in there and making the 2011 festival just as fabulous as ever.

We look forward to seeing you all next year!
