The Vancouver Poetry House presents feature poet, Erin Kirsh
Erin-Brooke Kirsh is a charming curmudgeon living in the rainforest of Vancouver. She is a two-time member of the Vancouver Poetry Slam team, and the 2012 Canadian Haiku Death Match champion. Her work has been published or is forthcoming in Arc Poetry Magazine, Strange Days Books, oratorealis, PULP, Drunk in a Midnight Choir, and Geist, where she was awarded second place in the 10 Annual Geist Postcard Story Contest. Erin-Brooke’s writing is the result of cynicism and whimsy getting together and drinking enough to get kicked out of the bar. Her greatest accomplishment is that one time she painted her nails without getting nail polish everywhere.
We are in our three-round summer season. A two-minute round of 12 poets, a one-minute round of 6 poets, and then a four-minute round of 3 poets. Cut from below, clean slate each round. Let the summer season begin!
Cafe Deux Soleils and the Van Slam strive to be a trans friendly place and a hate speech free zone. Help us with that. We also acknowledge that this event takes place on unceded First Nations Territory.
Also, be kind to our VOLUNTEER door staff. They have to follow BC Liquor Board Rules and once we are sold out we can’t let anyone in unless someone leaves. You cannot save seats for people in line. Let them know if you are leaving. Also no ATM at the door, it’s cash ONLY.
Get there early if you want a seat or want to slam. Before 7pm!
