The MSA Poets Potpourri Society (MSAPPS) is holding another Blue Moon Reading and Book Launch on May 13 from 6:30pm – 8:30pm.
MSAPPS is a poetry reading club based in Abbotsford. Founded in 1981 by Donna Bishop, it has, for over 25 years, provided a venue to local writers, largely poets, to give birth and voice to their best thoughts.
The Goals of MSA PPS:
Develop the skill of public reading for writers, both novices and journeymen, by providing a safe atmosphere in which to read their work
Encourage poets, writers and would-be writers to devote time to write and create
Help writers hone their craft through workshops and lectures
Collaborate on group literary projects
Promote the art of poetry in our community through public readings
Celebrate the life of the community through poems for special occasions
Raise awareness that the act of writing poetry and prose can heal emotions and elevate self-esteem
