Guernica Poets Set to Compete in Battle of the Bards

Participants have been announced for Poetry NOW: 3rd annual Battle of the Bards and 3 Guernica authors have made the list! Best of luck to John Oughton (Time Slip),  Jim Johnstone (The Velocity of Escape) and Jill Battson, who will be published by Guernica in the fall.

The competition, which features 20 upcoming and established poets, will be judged by Poet Laureate of Toronto Associate Jen Tindall.  Winners will receive an automatic invitation to read at the 32nd annual International Festival of Authors and an ad for their book in NOW. The event will be hosted by Jacob McArthur Mooney.

Last year Guernica authors Len Gasparini and Julie Roorda took part in the competition and were invited to participate in IFOA.
