Chalk it Up for Poetry

Chalk it Up for Poetry

Chalk it Up for Poetry

Starting Sunday, May 23
Send poems to rhymeswithdebra@gmail.com

A socially distanced poetry event, starting Sunday, May 23, 2021! Let’s cover the sidewalks in poetry during the Cathedral Village Arts Festival!

Grab some chalk, create a poem (or quote a favourite poem) and write it on a sidewalk anywhere in the Cathedral Village! Any format, theme, length, or language, take part in community art, vent your pandemic angst, add art to accompany your poetry, a free event, full poems or quotes, write it large or small, poetry for the people, cover the sidewalks with your brilliance! If you are unable to participate, send your poems to rhymeswithdebra@gmail.com and the Chalk it Up team will write it on the pavement for you and send you a photo. You can sign your name or keep it anonymous! Write your poems all week long during the festival or heck, write them all year long if you like (weather permitting)!

Take a photo of your poem and post it on Instagram and use the hashtag #chalkitupatCVAF. We’d love to read it!
