Lunch Poems at SFU


Lunch Poems at SFU is now programmed by SFU Vancouver Administration. For a current reading schedule please visit their site.

Past Lunch Poems content can still be found on this site. It was a fantastic 5 years of Lunch Poems at SFU with SFU Public Square. Thanks for your patronage!

Lunch Poems at SFU is a unique vibrant exchange of poetic ideas and cadence held the third Wednesday of every month, noon to 1 pm, in the Teck Gallery at Simon Fraser University's Harbour Centre Campus.

The raison d'être of Lunch Poems at SFU 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. So bring your lunch, your knitting, your kids and your grandparents whatever, whomever you wish, (unfortunately, no pets please!) We invite you to join us lunching on words and feeding your soul. No fees or registration. Just bring your lunch, curiosity, open mind, and love of words.

Since our inaugural poetry reading on March 28th, 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.
