Urban Legends & Writers Point presents RETREAT: A Spoken Word Concert.

Arts Court Theatre, 2 Daly Ave, Ottawa

When a poet retreats into words, what verse becomes the voice of their innermost truths?

13 poets with unique writing gifts converge on one stage in a night of intimate poetics. Featuring performances from some of Ottawa's poetry trailblazers, including new readings from Poet Laureate Jamaal Jackson Rogers.

This event is generously sponsored by The City of Ottawa and Versefest Poet Laureate Program.

Cost is pay what you can; proceeds go to support the Writers Point Poetry Retreat and Urban Legend Poetry Collective.

Arts Court Theatre 7-10pm Saturday, August 18
