    Zombies Hungry for Poetry, Not Brains

    by Phil - 0 Comment(s)

    Get your zombie on this weekend in Inglewood!

    It's a masquerade ball with Calgary Poet Laureate Kris Demeanor and the RE:act Collective. Other than promising a supremely great time at Inglewood's THE AREA, featuring FIRE PITS! BEER! WOOD OVEN PIZZA! LIVE ART! And prizes for best mask. And Best Mardi Gras themed zombie-esque costume...

    Money raised will go towards RE:act's Calgary Anthology Project and youth literacy initiatives.

    Speaking of the Calgary Anthology Project, RE:act is working with Frontenac House and House of Blue Skies to publish "a gorgeous coffee table anthology of poetry and visual art about the City of Calgary, created by Calgarian writers and artists". If you are a Calgary writer or artist, click here for the CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS. Here's what they're looking for:

    We are looking for works about, or inspired by, the City of Calgary. We hope to articulate the experience of the city through creative language and art. What stories is our city ready to tell us through our poets and artists? What sings in our green spaces? What thrives in the fast lane? What struggles in the margins? What chatters in the Plus 15s? What two-steps in the alleys? What surprises us, wounds us, heals us, makes us run, or woos us to stay?

    The print anthology will be launched in April 2014.

    House of Blue Skies is responsible these two beautiful anthologies, available at your local library:

    Writing the Land: Alberta through its poets Home and Away: Alberta's finest poets muse on the meaning of home
