If you want some hilarity with your poetry, we got you covered, thanks to our feature poet this evening!

Brendan Flaherty is a writer, spoken word poet, and occasional comic originally from Saskatoon on Treaty 6 Territory. He has represented his hometown at CFSW (once), CIPS at Verses (also once), and had a syndicated political humor column on CBC radio during the last federal election. He’s the founder and festival director of the Saskatoon Poetic Arts Festival (SPAF). He hosts a live talk show called Please Explain Toronto To Me, which is a follow-up podcast to his previous show This Night Will Change Your Life (which he’s still paying web hosting fees on, so go ahead and download those episodes). He’s been named a CBC Future 40 winner, which is like the 40 Under 40 except the trophy is etched with ‘recipient’. He’s happy to be here.

Host TBD.
