Poetry Walk

April 03 2023

Bringing JOY to Downtown Courtenay through poetry, this first ever Poetry Walk showcases the work of local poets in some of your favourite Downtown businesses.

We are celebrating National Poetry Month this April and the League of Canadian Poets has chosen JOY as 2023’s theme.

Enjoy the work of 11 local poets, handpainted on shop windows by local artist Kelly Everill throughout 4th, 5th and 6th Streets.

Thanks to Artful : The Poets for their group’s contributions.

Featuring the work of: Adelia MacWilliam, Carys Owen, Corwin Fox, Diana Kolpak, Ed Varney, Lawrence J.W. Cooper, Louis Stevenson, Margaret Mackenzie, Natalie Nickerson, Scott A. Hamilton, and Senyuè.

Come together with us and meet the artists, Thursday, April 27 for a live Poetry Showcase, 5:30 p.m. at the Comox Valley Art Gallery.

Until then, go search for poetry and find some JOY downtown!
