How many poets does it take to fill Dundas Square? No, this is not some bad joke. It’s actually a post on this weekend’s World Jam. Friends of the Poet Laureate and Diaspora Dialogues are filling Dundas Square with 50 poets from noon ot midnight this Sunday, Sep. 3rd.
Molly Peacock, George Elliot Clarke, Afua Cooper, Stuart Ross, Teenah Edan are just one tenth of the poets they’ve got lined up for this event. It’s the largest event ever put on by Friends of the Poet Laureate, a group started by former Toronto Poet Laureate Dennis Lee.
