Welcome New Executive Director, Erin Kirsh!

Please welcome Vancouver Poetry House’s new Executive Director: Erin Kirsh!

Erin has been a member of the poetry community as a poet, slam team member, and Wordplay workshop facilitator for several years now, and she deeply understands the importance of this community to its members. Her skills in communication, writing, customer service, management, and event planning will help her to support the growth of VPH both as an arts organization and as community that cares about social justice and seeks to be inclusive to all walks of life.

We deeply appreciate Chris Gilpin’s huge contributions to this community as outgoing Executive Director and thank him for helping train and orient Erin over the past month in this role. Thank you for welcoming and supporting Erin in her new position with VPH.  Erin takes over her new role officially on July 1st.
