PLEASE NOTE: Sept 21 only, Planet Earth Poetry is happening at Open Space (upstairs at 510 Fort St), rather than our usual venue. Many thanks to Open Space for opening their doors to us in our time of need!
Daniel G. Scott is the Artistic Director of the Planet Earth Poetry reading series. His collections of poetry include Terrains (2014) and Gnarled Love (2016), as well as several chapbooks, Interrupted and Street Signs, both published by Goldfinch Press.

Carl Hare in his long career has been a professor, actor, director, playwright, and poet. Odysseus, Book One of his trilogy On the River of Time, was published in the spring of 2017. Other work includes performances of his play The Eagle and the Tiger and his adaptation of Ibsen’s John Gabriel Borkman; the setting of six of his children’s poems to music by Canadian composer Malcolm Forsyth; a commissioned poem for Forsyth’s A Ballad of Canada, performed by the National Arts Centre Orchestra; and A Weathering of Years, a collection of poetry published in 2015.
The Planet Earth Poetry reading series is a launching pad for the energies of writers and poets established and not. The evening begins at 7:30 with an open mic, followed by a featured reader(s). Planet Earth Poetry is located at Hillside Coffee and Tea, 1633 Hillside Ave (across from Bolen Books). Between 7 and 7:15, put your name in the hat to read at open mic.
