Two award-winning poets will be featured during the next Poetic Justice event in New Westminster.
The event is set for Sunday, Oct. 30 at 3 p.m. in the back room at the Heritage Grill.
It includes readings by featured poets Kate Braid and Sandy Shreve.
Braid has written poetry and non-fiction about subjects ranging from Georgia O'Keeffe and Emily Carr to mine workers and fishers.
She has published five books of poetry, most recently Turning Left to the Ladies and A Well-Mannered Storm: The Glenn Gould Poems.
Her work has won and been shortlisted for a number of awards and has been included in many anthologies.
She has given readings, lectures and workshops across Canada and has lately begun to collaborate with musicians in her work.
She has also coedited, with Shreve, the groundbreaking book of Canadian form poetry, In Fine Form.
Shreve has published four poetry collections, most recently Suddenly, So Much.
Recent work has appeared in her chapbook Cedar Cottage Suite, and a new chapbook, Level Crossing, is coming from Alfred Gustav Press in 2012.
Shreve also edited Working For A Living, a collection of poems and stories by women about their work, and she founded B.C.'s Poetry in Transit program.
Her work has won the Earle Birney Prize for Poetry and has been shortlisted for the Milton Acorn People's Poetry Award and the National Magazine Awards for Poetry.
Their readings will be followed by an open mike session.
