Our brave World Poets Canada are standing in front of the transit bus where we read poetry. Featured poets: Yilin Wang,Theo Campbell, Caroline Nazareno and Dr. Warren Stevenson. Hosts: Ariadne Sawyer and Alejandro Mujica-Olea.
Peter has his new yellow World Poetry t-shirt on, purchased at the World Poetry Store on this site.
Earlier, the Poetry Tent blew over with gusts of wind and we had the exciting opportunity to read inside a large bus with the background music of drumming! The youth poets and others were exceptional. We took an imaginary bus ride through Chile, Canada, China and the Phillipines. Questions were answered about several subjects and the audience was very supportive. One of the poets, World Poetry Youth Ambassador, Theo Campbell has a link of his work on YouTube page:: http://www.youtube.com/user/SaintRasselas
Word on the Street was a wonderful event and the volunteers were amazing. Thanks also to the transit bus operator fo opening andclosing the doors.
World Poetry wishes to thank WOTS for letting us read for an hour and fifteen minutes, and for presenting an exceptional event.
