Speaking Crow is funded and facilitated by the Winnipeg International Writers Festival (WIWF) which is committed to creating safe and respectful opportunities for writers, volunteers, audience members, and workers to share knowledge, explore ideas, and build community.
This masked crusader is our first virtual feature reader! Winnipeg poet David Streit was in attendance for the first Speaking Crow. (That was 20 years ago…. David was 24…. He pauses while that sinks in.) This will be his first time using Zoom. The poems will be about pieces of fourteen years in a train. And recent poems written during recent events. A typewriter may happen. Mark your calendars for Tuesday July 7 and stay tuned for details on how to register.
