Just wanted to point out that the Collage: A night of Connection event this Thursday at the Jewish Community Centre is also a participatory event. The people listed will read poems they have written to the art exhibit in advance, but there will also be an opportunity for all present to write to the art as well. So bring your pens and paper to write and share at the open mic if you are so inclined.

And don't forget the launch of the Best Canadian Poetry anthology, Feb. 7 at Cafe Montmartre on Main St. 7 pm (I think)
