Reading poetry in the woods

Canadian poet Jordan Scott will do a reading at Woodhaven Eco-Culture Centre July 25

An award-winning poet is making his way to UBC Okangan.

Canadian poet Jordan Scott is hosting a public reading next week, as part of the Summer Writing Intensive program at UBC’s Okanagan campus.

Scott is a visiting author with UBC Okanagan’s Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies and is taking part in the faculty’s A Creative Writing Collaboratory Summer Writing Intensive program, run by assistant professor, author and poet Matt Rader.

Scott was nominated for the 2009 Dorothy Livesay Prize for Poetry, and is the current Writer in Residence at Simon Fraser University. His book titles include Silt, blert, DECOMP, and Clearance Process and his long poem, Night & Ox will be published this fall.

Venture out to the woods on July 25 for an evening of collaboration games, a reading by Scott and some sharing of ongoing work from UBC creative writing students from 7 to 9 p.m.

This event is free and open to the public at the Woodhaven Eco-Culture Centre, 969 Raymer Avenue.
