Seeing Leonard Cohen

June 27, 2008

It is hard to remain quiet after having seen poet Leonard Cohen sing last night at Montreal’s Place des Arts. His dedication of a song to the late Irving Layton, reminded me of why this festival is important: to give poets an opportunity to carry the torch of poetry.

And we will do our best to ensure all poets who want to participate in the inaugural Montreal Public Poetry Festival get a chance. If a poet doesn’t have pockets of money, or much writing to share, they can team up with a poet friend to share a 1/2 hour slot. Cooperation in the style of Layton and Cohen.
