Verses Festival of Words needs support to continue to offer its incredible spoken word programming each spring. To that end, we ask that you help us with your fabulous generosity by supporting Verses and Vancouver Poetry House.
Donations assist us in bringing to you all of our amazing events, help us pay artists, and allow us to re-invest in this community that we love so much. Whether it’s $5 or $500, we’ll use it to make poetry happen.
Run poetry workshops and a team poetry slam competition for high schools students with Hullabaloo the first three days of each Verses Festival of Words.
Foster the artistic development of local emerging artists by seeing them perform alongside seasoned professional spoken word and literary artists.
Pay amazing poets from all over North America and the world to come and feature at our shows.
Produce workshops, showcases, open mics, book and magazine launches, and the Canadian Individual Poetry Slam championships for audiences of all ages.
