About LitLive.Ca: The Canadian Review of Literature in Performance

 

February 18, 2011 marked the launch date of Canada’s only online review devoted to a critical exploration of all aspects of literature in performance: spoken word, dub poetry, performance poetry, slam, sound poetry, orature, theatrical monologues, text-based performance art...

Each issue of The Canadian Review of Literature in Performance includes in-depth features on all aspects of the word brought to the stage. Important performers and key organizers of Canada’s performance literature scene are profiled, and The Canadian Review of Literature in Performance also features a wide variety of reviews, scene reports and feedback on some of the many spoken word festivals that take place across the country.

With a thrice-yearly publication schedule and regular updates on events and issues of vital interest to the community, The Canadian Review of Literature in Performance encourages and facilitates an ongoing conversation among practitioners of spoken word and literary performance across the country. It provides much-needed feedback on the creation process of live performance (including recordings of live performance) to artists, events organizers, workshop leaders and administrators, and it brings a broader awareness of their work to the general reader.

If you’re part of a spoken word or literary performance scene in Canada, you can get involved! We’re looking for scene correspondents, bloggers, festival reporters, reviewers and feature writers. We also encourage artists to contact us about new releases or upcoming tours and performances. Email: editors [at] litlive.ca.
