Poetry as Compact Storytelling

Award winning Kelowna poet entertains during Culture Days

Fern G. Z. Carr is the author of Shards of Crystal and will perform on Sept. 28 and 29

Calling all writers, poets and social media marketers.

On Sun., Sept. 29 at 1:30 p.m. at the Rotary Centre for the Arts Mary Irwin Theatre, join League of Canadian Poets and Federation of BC Writers member, Fern G. Z. Carr, for “Poetry as Compact Storytelling”.

Carr will be doing a poetry reading from her collection, Shards of Crystal. The book is described as “a metamorphosis of darkness to light that moves readers to the brink then snatches them back.”

Hear her present poems from Shards of Crystal and the fascinating stories behind them. She will follow with an interactive audience question and answer session as well as a book signing.

Fern will also be at the Rotary Centre for the Arts on Sat., Sept. 28 from 1 – 4 p.m. for her event, “Yes, Her Poetry Really Is in Orbit around Mars”. Chat with her and ask her questions on everything from how to get published, to the role of social media in the arts, to how to be inspired. Bring a poem for a free critique.

A former lawyer, teacher and past president of both the Kelowna branch of the BC SPCA and Project Literacy Central Okanagan Society, Carr composes and translates poetry in six languages including Mandarin. www.ferngzcarr.com

These two events are part of Culture Days which takes place Sept. 27 to 29 in Kelowna.
