Recovering The SelfA Journal of Hope and Healing


Cascadia Poetry Festival, April 30 to May 3

Spoken Word/Poetry Workshop with Missie Peters and Anastacia Tolbert

May 01, 2:15 – 5:15 pmcascadiapoetryfestival

Use your body as a tool for inspiration! Bring in poetic affirmations and revelations from within your own body (instead of your head) as Anastacia Tolbert guides you through a series of exercises designed to draw out intuitive writing. Then work with Missie Peters to usher your work from the body to the voice via the stage.

Anastacia Tolbert’s work is a syrupy rune—wings, words & why not. She is a Cave Canem Fellow, Hedgebrook Alumna, Jack Straw Writer, EDGE Professional Writer, VONA alum, creative writing workshop facilitator, documentarian and playwright. She is writer, co-director, and co-producer of GOTBREAST? Documentary (2007): a documentary about the views of women regarding breast and body image. Lately she’s been obsessed with the body & the stories it holds. Her poetry, fiction & nonfiction have been published widely.

Missie Peters is an award-wining spoken word performer from Victoria, BC. She is a twotime Victoria Slam Champion, the former slam master, one half of the improvised spoken word duo SpeakEasy and the director of Not Your Grandma’s Poetry. She currently produces the annual Victoria Spoken Word Festival. Her poetry finds the personal in the political and finds the metaphor in the mundane. She is also a huge science fiction geek.

Location: Vancouver Island University Bldg. 355, Room 103

Price: $60
