Lunch Poems at SFU

We’ve moved online!

Lunch Poems readings have returned—and will now be offered online to protect the health and safety of our community. Be sure to register in advance to receive access details.

Lunch Poems at SFU is a unique opportunity to celebrate poetry held the third Wednesday of every month, from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. PT.

The raison d'être of Lunch Poems is to invite and welcome everyone to enjoy poetry in a relaxed and casual atmosphere, whether you are new to poetry or have had a long romance with it. We invite you to join us to lunch on words and feed your soul—just bring your curiosity, open mind and love of words.

Since our inaugural poetry reading on March 28, 2012 featuring Vancouver's Poet Laureate Evelyn Lau, Lunch Poems has hosted a wide range of poets and their works reflecting the rich diversity of the poetry scene in our community.
