Lunch Poems at SFU

Lunch Poems at SFU is a unique opportunity to celebrate the spoken word held the third Wednesday of every month, from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m., in the Teck Gallery at Simon Fraser University's Vancouver Campus.

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. No fees or registration. Just bring your lunch, 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.
