Last night, The Quilliad participated in a Halloween poetry circle at the Smiling Buddha bar on College Street in Toronto. We had three feature readers–Christian Quaresma, Phlip Arima, and Mike Lipsius–and a few other poets who joined in as well. We also had a merch/art display table for people to peruse before and after the readings, which ranged from contemporary lyric poems to dark twists on childhood story-telling techniques.
Without further ado, here are the photos:
We may be doing more of these. The Quilliad will also be at Canzine on Saturday (November 1) from 1-7pm at 918 Bathurst in Toronto. Canzine is a “festival of zine culture and independent arts” that occurs in three cities across Canada in October or November each year. The festival originated in Toronto in 1995 and is still going strong.
