Farewell to Nanaimo’s Inaugural Youth Poet Laureate – Unveiling Youth Poetry Anthology

31 / May / 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm PDT

  • Join us on Friday, May 31 at 5:00 pm at the Vancouver Island Conference Centre (Piper’s Lagoon Lobby, next to E.J. Hughes Mural) as we launch Nanaimo’s first ever youth poetry video anthology “Beyond This City’s Streets” and say “farewell” to inaugural Youth Poet Laureate Kailey DeFehr as she wraps up her 2017/18 term.
  • In November 2018, Kailey invited local poets ages 15 to 26 to submit their original works for a chance for their poetry to be featured in a video poetry anthology, “Beyond This City’s Streets”. Poets were asked to answer the question: What does it mean to be a youth in Nanaimo?
  • RSVP is required as seating is limited. Please RSVP directly to cultureandheritage@nanaimo.ca or by calling 250-755-4483.
