The 2nd annual Poetry and a Pint

...happened on May 20 at the Bushwakker Brewing Company in Regina and it was so much fun! Thank you to Anne McDonald, Bruce Rice, Carle Steel, David Sealy, and Nathan Mader for their fantastic readings! 

The event was loosely themed around the title "On Special." The writers were asked to work a menu item into their intro or into the work itself. They all took the challenge in different and amazing directions. The crowd too was awesome. Thank you to everyone for coming out. Thank you to Grant from Bushwakker and Tracy Hamon from the Saskatchewan Writers' Guild for putting this fun together. Thank you to everyone at Bushwakker. Hats off to Bushwakker's pastry chef who is clearly a master. The limited edition Chocolate Muse cheesecake, made just for this occasion, was absolutely divine! I wrote and delivered my first ever ode in its honour using the form Keats seemed to favour. It was as cheesy as you can imagine!
