    Hello, I have just heard about your wonderful festival. I am the Managing Editor of BookThug, and we are based in Toronto Canada. I am curious about how you curate the festival and if you invite poets from Canada to attend? One of our poets has expressed a sincere desire to participate in your festival one day and I would love to send you more information about her. I am including my email below and would love to hear from you.
