WORDS OF THE POET
The words of poets over centuries untold, preserve for posterity the moods and emotion, harmony and commotion, indeed all that have come to define our complex world.
Palaver looks to the poets: the purging fire of biting satire, crisp and precise, haunting, taunting, encouraging, cajoling, inspiring generations with word images and ideas. Theirs is a lifelong mission to document and present the truths and subtleties, inconsistencies and paradoxes, the struggles, setbacks, obstacles and triumphs that helped to form and shape our history. Artistes daring to bare their souls to awaken our consciousness, our poets offer us a lens with which to see a reality beyond our own confining horizons; to have us think; to create empathy and build bridges of understanding.
Wasaga Beach, with its gorgeous natural backdrop presents an ideal setting and perfect ambiance to enjoy poetry and poets, their thoughts and emotions.
Palaver International Literary Festival presents each year a slate of contemporary poets and spoken word artists.
