THE DVBIA IS PLEASED TO LAUNCH THE POETRY PHONE, A PROJECT CELEBRATING THE WORK OF LOCAL VANCOUVER WRITERS.
The Poetry Phone is Vancouver’s first free poetry hotline. Callers can dial 1-833-POEMS-4-U (763-6748) to listen to poetry recordings provided by 10 local writers. After dialling the main line, callers can press numbers 0 to 9 to listen to different poems.
Partnering with renowned writer Renee Sarojini Saklikar as curator, our goal is to bring a new and accessible format of uplifting entertainment to anyone who has felt social isolation during the difficult times these past few years.
