Verses Festival of Words is Canada’s largest alternative literary festival bringing spoken word and page poets, storytellers, singer-songwriters and improvisers to Vancouver stages. In our tenth festival, we are celebrating words with a good heart and a good mind. Together, we will share poetry that guides us and allows us to rejoice in our creations. From Indigenous teachings to the anthems of our youth, change originates with the tradition of ceremony and the desire to speak about our lives.
