Tonight It’s Poetry is turning 9! Join us for an evening of words and revelry. Raffles! Prizes! Cake auction! And, the TiP Community Stage!
Our feature will be Brendan Flaherty. A long-time stalwart of the TiP community, Brendan Flaherty has been on the Saskatoon Slam Team (once), represented TiP at the Canadian Individual Poetry Slam (also once), was the host of a syndicated satirical column on CBC radio during the last federal election (you probably missed it), was named a CBC Future 40 winner in 2016 (the trophy is etched with “recipient”) and has been named Saskatoon’s Best Poet in Planet S (again, once… they removed the category in subsequent years, one imagines due to arbitrariness). He’s also the host of a podcast called This Night Will Change Your Life. Perhaps you’ve listened. Most relevent, he’s the director of the Saskatoon Poetic Arts Festival, which takes place May 9th to 13th at La Troupe Du Jour.
