Featured Guest:

Kristian Enright is a Winnipeg writer whose central concerns involve place, mental health, philosophy and the art of debating. He is currently at work on a play called “Pipelines” that is a protest play about the climate crisis. Other projects include a collection of short stories that involve the vitality of dialogue. His newest work is an ecological long poem that deals with the consciousness of space and is situated on the prairies. This work is entitled “Postmodern Weather Report” and is the culmination of a long period of time, and an excavation of the poet’s mind in order to produce more resonant epiphany space.

Polish up your new poems for your 3 minutes of fame at the open mic which will happen immediately after our featured guest!
