VERSeFest 2012: February 28 - March 4, 2012

VERSeFest is Ottawa's international poetry festival, an event that draws no distinction between 'page' and 'stage,' presenting poetry of all forms and styles in a unique, boundary-hopping, energetic and inspiring format. The Festival is presented by VERSe Ottawa, a collective of 12 reading series and slams, each of which organizes an event. In 2012, the Festival's second year, the scope has been vastly expanded to include international stars and award winners, with participants from three countries, and poetic styles from GG and Griffin winner Roo Borson to "outlaw hip-hop harmonica player and beatbox poet" CR Avery, plus a whole lot more.

The full Festival schedule will be announced in early January at Festival passes are only $50 for six days, and day passes are also available.
