Encore Books and the Encore Poetry Project would like to invite you to the launch of our first poetry anthology.
The Encore Poetry Project is an interdisciplinary community-focused project that seeks to highlight the poetry, short fiction, visual artworks, and music of local Montreal/Tiohtià:ke writers and artists of all ages and backgrounds. Working in collaboration with Encore Books in NDG, the Encore Poetry Project displays poems in the bookstore window, as well as working closely with artist Alex O’Neill providing visual art inspired by each poem. At this time all submissions for written work are in English.
We have been working towards publishing an anthology of poems and art, so we are very pleased to announce the inaugural event of the Encore Poetry Project and the launch of our anthology Polyphony.
The launch will take place on Thursday, November 9th at 7pm at Cardinal Cocktails & Vins.
Our doors will open at 7 PM for a literary expo, where numerous Montreal-based journals will display their publications alongside ours. Our artist Alex O’Neill will be present selling prints associated with each of the anthology’s poems; proceeds from the prints will go directly to our published poets and the artist himself. There will also be live music, delicious cocktails, and a complimentary charcuterie board, courtesy of the Cardinal.
Readings by our published poets will begin around 8:30 PM.
Tickets can be purchased in advance for $12, or at the doors for $15. There is the option to reserve a copy of the anthology, as well as the option to save a few dollars and purchase your ticket and a copy of the anthology as a bundle.
