Sunday's Cool for Poetry in the Park this Sunday Aug 29!

Passion Pitch Presents
Sunday's Cool for Poetry in the Park
Sunday, August 29, 3 pm to 4:30 pm
Riley Park, Calgary

Hot on the heels of a hot, hot summer on Venus, it's time to refill your poetry batteries with the next installment of Poetry in the Park. This time, Sunday's Cool.

Come poets and lovers of beauty to Riley Park on Sunday, August 29, 3 pm. Bring poems and voices -- there is no microphone. Bring a lawn chair if sitting on grass is not to your liking. This will be a very informal gathering. Exact spot to be determined. Look for the people doing poetry.

All styles and ages welcome. Bring poems of every pleasure but do have some PG poems with you to read in case there is a PG audience present.

Optional: Meet at the Roasterie a bit earlier to grab a coffee.
