rvws_ye2016_webWe’re going to put 2016 to bed with an evening of literary celebration at the legendary Anza Club in east Vancouver.

Please join us for a great night of wonderful people reading their great work.

The whole room will be a warm embrace on a cold November night.

Entry by donation, nobody turned away.

Sponsored by Driftwood Brewery, Poetry is Dead Magazine, SubTerrain Magazine, SAD Mag, GEIST, CiTR, and Books on the Radio.

We acknowledge that the city of Vancouver is located on the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations. We humbly thank our hosts for their generosity in allowing us to build our reading series here and we hope that our work honours their generous spirit.

Here’s what we got:

Six writers from across genres, sensibilities, histories, and perspectives.

THIS EVENT WILL INCLUDE: Fiction, speculative fiction, poetry, non-fiction, jokes, improvised self-deprecating scenarios, cold beverages, great people, and A CHUCK TINGLE T-SHIRT GIVEAWAY!
