Kim Addonizio, Hera Lindsay Bird, Matthew Dickman, Ali Cobby Eckermann, Jordan Mounteer, Jan Zwicky
Host: Lorna Crozier
Festival favourite and internationally-renowned Canadian poet Lorna Crozier has brought together an incredible lineup for The Poetry Bash at our thirtieth Festival. Oakland-based poet Kim Addonizio’s work is known for its “gritty, street-wise narrators and a wicked sense of wit.” 29-year-old Hera Lindsay Bird’s self-titled debut has been the fastest-selling, most popular book of poetry in New Zealand. Portland native Matthew Dickman breaks taboos about suicide in his new work. Indigenous Australian poet Ali Cobby Eckermann, a member of the Stolen Generations, was recently awarded a prestigious Windham-Campbell prize for her body of work. Self-described ‘vagabond’ Jordan Mounteer’s poetry ranges from tree planting in BC to travels in Asia. And Governor General’s Award winner Jan Zwicky reads from her latest environmentally-conscious collection.
