I would like to present to you guys a show that will be happening on the 14th of January. That is 10 days before the season opener. The Show is called The Gallery. Ahmed Ali aka Knowmadic from the Breath In Poetry Collective will be showcasing at the show. The Breath In Poetry supports The Gallery for bringing together artists around Edmonton into a free annual event. It will be an impressive night of photography, art and poetry.
Your Art. Your Voice.

I would like to thank you for all the support you have provided the Breath In Poetry Collective throughout 2011. It was definitely a great year.
By showing up you were able to provide the support needed for the 2011 Edmonton Slam team to travel to Toronto and win the Canadian Festival of Spoken Word Championship. All thanks to you.
Furthermore, in terms of attendance, this year has been outstanding. It proves that your support has increased.
When we approached new attendees to Rouge lounge, more often than not they said a friend recommended the poetry night, and that they were satisfied and would recommend their friends in return.
I can not emphasize how grateful we are here at the Breath In Poetry collective.
Continue your support and we will continue providing a great poetry hub for you to share or listen to poetry.
Remember we are going to be back on the 24th of January as well.
I hope to see you guys at the season opener.
On Behalf of the Breath In Poetry Collective
Have a Happy and safe New Years. May 2012 be filled with success and progress.
Hello Family, It has been two weeks and we already miss you. Remember, we will be on break until January 24th. We are taking a break to continue providing you with excellent nights throughout the year. Also, this gives you a chance to enjoy the coming holidays and provides students the time to study. While we are on that topic. Best of luck to all of the students writing exams. Just remember to breathe.
If you attended any of the previous Tuesdays since we have been on break, you will have noticed that Scott Sterling is running a variety show. Sterling Scott is a great comedian who is well known in Edmonton. The Sterling Scott show will be running at the same time Breath In Poetry ran poetry.
We are going to launch the season by inviting Anna Maire Sewell the Poet Laureate of Edmonton as a feature. Furthermore, the Breath In Poetry Collective will be reading. The first half will consist of the BIP members, the second half will be the poet laureate. As usualy we will ending the night off with a musical guest.
