TPV gets WotS lovin’

Thanks to Torontoist for the shoutout!

Candy with your culture, London?

Thanks to everyone who came out to drop some loonies and turn some dials at Word on the Street in Toronto on Sunday. We had a great time, and are three sunburns and one parking ticket the richer. Who says poetry don’t pay?

Snacks the Traveller hitched a ride back to London with Toronto Poetry Vendorette Carey Toane, who will be waiting with coins at the ready at Culture Days* this Sunday, Oct. 2, at Museum London. Museum books and catalogues will be on sale, and the city’s rare, art and indie booksellers will be on site. There’ll also be workshops and snacks and a zine table manned with local artists to help you get your zine on. Come over between 12 and 4 and say hi!

*Every day is culture day, just sayin’.

TPV does Word on the Street

Hey Toronto, save your loonies! Snacks is going to be at Word on the Street this Sunday, Sept. 25, selling poems by 30 of your finest poets. Come on by booth 251 in the southeast area of the fest and crank a knob, hmm?

SuperCrawl appearance cancelled

TPV is sad to announce we’ve had to cancel our appearance at SuperCrawl in Hamilton tonight due to unforeseen and undeniable vendor illness. Stay tuned for details on Word on the Street in Toronto in September and Museum London in October.

TPV’s Top 30 for fall

This fall is packed with festival action for your favourite travelling paper candy machine, Snacks. First up, he’ll be at SuperCrawl in Hamilton on Saturday, Sept. 10, hanging out on James St. North next to the Barton Street Stage. Crawl by, drop some loonies and say hello — there’ll be poetry readings on that stage starting at 4:45 p.m. and onward into the night. Stay tuned for details on Word on the Street in Toronto in September and Museum London in October.

As a special festival issue, TPV is compiling a greatest hits collection of all 30 Toronto poets who have contributed thus far, from Linda Besner to Zoe Whittall. (For a full list, see our Issues page.) Now’s your chance to stock up on back issues and collect all 30!
