omg v125pc ebd deja vu
At the end of August I posted about the end-of-the-month early-bird deadline for the Vancouver 125 Poetry Conference. Well, they've extended that deadline by a month (the new deadline is tomorrow, October 1st), so I'm back doing the same again (if you want all the details, click here to read last month's post).
It looks like they've also dropped the rate for partial tickets from $20-25 for one session, to $35-$50 for a whole day. The one-day registration seems like a pretty decent value, especially on the Friday, with readings by Matthew Zapruder, Nick Thran, Katia Grubisic, Matt Rader, George Murray and Ken Babstock throughout the day (among many others), and an evening keynote reading featuring Don McKay, Fanny Howe and Martin Espada. I think I'm going to take that day in. If you're interested as well, you can register here.
