Poets @ Artfest IV 2018


Artfest Kingston is presenting year four of Poets @ Artfest. In 2017, in celebration of Canada's 150th birthday we published the Canada 150th anthology of 130 pages of poetry. Bruce Kaufman curated the collection. Poets from Kingston, Ontario and Quebec contributed to this project. The results are interesting, thought provoking and heartfelt. The book is still available to purchase online, at the Kingston Tourism Centre and the Thousand Islands Gift Shop on Ontario Street.


Poets @ Artfest IV

In its 4rth iteration of a summer poetry festival, following the much enjoyed festivals in 2015, 2016, and 2017 this year’s event will again feature an eclectic mix of wonderful poets both local and outside this area - Toronto, Ottawa, Kemptville, Montreal, a few places beyond, and everywhere between.

Some of the published poets will be bringing books as well, for display and sale.

NEW this year, the event will include a Collaborative Poem Project created over the three day event. This will be an interesting experience, as visitors can add to an ongoing poem. Final editing will be done by Bruce Kauffman, and the poem will be published online with all contributors credited.

Watch for updates on th ereading schedule as we finalize the details.
