Following its Annual General Meeting and Visioning session, the Poetry Gabriola Society is very pleased to introduce its new board of directors, and plans for an expanding vision of the society’s role on Gabriola, and on the national literary and performance scene.
It's coming and soon! The Festival is just a few days away. Do you have your Festival Passes? That $75 gets you 4 days of amazing events. Each evening performance is $16. Get your tickets at Artworks or through the Poetry Gabriola website.
On Saturday, February 18, and Sunday, February 19, enjoy Knock-Knock, Who's There?, a FREE, site-specific, multi-artist event designed to take place in the 11 tiny cabins on the oceanside grounds of the Dragon's Lodge. From 12:30pm until 2:00pm, the audience is invited to fan out into the forest and start knocking on cabin doors.
Join two of our favourite heavy hitters on opening night for a double header that's all about writing and baseball. Your host for the evening will be rock-star accordionist Barbara Adler.

Announcing the 8th Annual Poetry Gabriola Festival
February 16 - 19, 2012
Poetry Gabriola had an amazing year in 2011 with the creation of the Poetry Yurt at the Commons and a full summer program of performance labs.
The Summer Inventions Creation Labs are truly delivering the unexpected. May Moore's songwriting lab was SOLD OUT with a dozen Gabriolans composing and performing new songs. Wow! What an experience!
