Missie not to be missed
October 10th, 2014
Missie Peters of Victoria is one-half of the improvised spoken word duo SpeakEasy and a self-described science fiction geek. She has also been director of Not Your Grandma’s Poetry and producer of the Victoria Spoken Word Festival… Over the years Barry MacKinnon of Prince George has amassed a sizeable archive of “really good smelling” small press items such old issues of Tish magazine and gestetnered books. MacKinnon will bring some samples when he joins poetry veteran George Stanley and two-time Victoria Slam Champion Missie Peters, who organizes the annual Victoria Spoken Word Festival, as the B.C. contingent for the first Eco-Poetics Bioregionalism Small Press Fair to be held in Nanaimo and at Vancouver Island University, April 30-May 3. Other participants in this Cascadia Poetry Festival initiative will include Americans Anastacia Tolbert, Brenda Hillman, Paul Nelson and Nadine Antoinette Maestas.
