Share |

As a poet, I am always looking for new ways to promote poetry and this week’s WORD Vancouver literary festival (www.wordvancouver.ca) is doing something completely out-of-the-box launching their first Automated Poetry Project. During the festival, WORD Vancouver will transform ordinary bubblegum vending machines into poetry dispensers. Selected poems choosen form many Canadian poetry books will be placed in vending machine’s bubble balls and dispensed for a toonie each. All funds raised from this project will be used to promote poetry at the WORD Vancouver festival. In this video, Taryn Boyd from the Literary Press Group of Canada and WORD Vancouver festival's board member discusses the Automated Poetry Project.
