Poets Caravan

The Planet Earth Poetry Poets Caravan highlights the rich cultural landscape of Southern Vancouver Island. Each poet is represented by a pin on Google Earth on a spot meaningful to them – somewhere they like to do their writing or find particularly inspiring. You can watch Susan’s video here or head over to Google Earth to watch all the poets who took part.

Planet Earth Poetry is Canada’s longest running poetry reading series. It meets every Friday night from September to May, and a few times over the summer. Susan is a frequent reader at the open mic.
