Three Tightrope authors will read at the NOW Open Poetry Stage event on March 31 at 7:30 p.m. at the Brigantine Room at Harboufront Centre.

Come support 3 Tightrope authors at a fun event at Harbourfront Centre!

1 stage. 20 poets. 1 winner.

In 2009 Authors at Harbourfront Centre posted its first ever open call for submissions. The standard of entries was astonishing and the resulting event was one of the highlights of the year. Everyone loves a good thing, so in 2010 they’re repeating the concept. And this time, they’re partnering with NOW Magazine to make it even bigger and better!

On the eve of National Poetry Month, this popular event featuring 20 poets on one stage returns. One poet will receive an automatic invitation to read at the 31st annual International Festival of Authors, AND an ad for their book in NOW!

3 Tightrope poets will be reading at this fine event:

Dayle Furlong
Fraser Sutherland
Tara-Michelle Ziniuk

among 17 other fabulous local poets

Judges: Geoffrey E. Taylor, Director, Authors at Harbourfront Centre; Jen Tindall, Artistic Associate, Authors at Harbourfront Centre; Robert Priest, author and NOW Magazine contributor.

Host: Jacob McArthur Mooney, winner of last year’s Open Stage.
