The clouds gathered, but so did the crowds at this year’s Word on the Street festival in Toronto on September 22.

I was talking to writers on stage at the Vibrant Voices of Ontario stage all morning, and thankfully the rain kept away.

This year’s Vibrant Voices were:

  • David Macfarlane, presenting The Figures of Beauty
  • Adam Dickinson and Gillian Savigny, discussing science in poetry
  • Don Gillmor, presenting Mount Pleasant
  • Catherine Bush, presenting Accusation
  • Kenneth Bonert, presenting The Lion Seeker
