Speaking Crow is pleased to re-introduce occasional pop-events in the Millennium Library in Winnipeg.

Our first December 2023 event was a blast! Our second pop-up will be Saturday, March 9 at 1:00 pm. NOTE: we will meet in the New & Noted room on the first floor this time.
The afternoon will run like Speaking Crows of the before times. There will be an open mic sign-up sheet when you arrive.

These pop-up events will not be livestreamed, and we will not meet online on Tuesday, March 5, but will reconvene on Zoom Tuesday, April 2, 2024.

If you have any questions regarding the event please send an email to host Angeline Schellenberg: speakingcrow@thinairwinnipeg.ca

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.

Polish up your new poems for your 3 minutes of fame at the open mic! Speaking Crow is a space that values diversity, creativity, and encouragement. Whether you do spoken word or page poetry, whether you’ve published widely or just started writing, we can’t wait to hear your poems.
