On Tuesday, March 31st, a gathering was held at The Roxy Theatre lounge to present the newly released anthology, "Mix Well," a collection of poems penned by local poets to raise awareness of poetry month, and funds for the Owen Sound Poet Laureate program, the monthly "Sounds at the Market" show, and the Owen Sound Farmers Market.

April is National Poetry Month and this year's theme is "Food." To that end, Owen Sound's Poet Laureate, Terry Burns came up with the idea of publishing an anthology of verses with that theme, and using the Farmers Market as a sub theme.

The beneficiaries include "Sounds at the Market," a show that happens once a month on the second Sunday from 2:00PM to 4:00PM in the Owen Sound Farmers Market building. "Sounds," as audience members and participants call it, showcases poetry, spoken word, and music, combining featured performers and open mic spots.

As a happy coincidence, many of the poets published in the anthology are veterans of the "Sounds" stage.


On Tuesday, March 31, the public is invited to the launch of MIX WELL: A POETRY ANTHOLOGY at the Roxy Theatre at 7 pm. Thirty-eight area poets were asked to reflect on the subject of "food" - the theme of this April's National Poetry Month. Owen Sound's Poet Laureate Terry Burns says the result is "an eclectic and charming collection which should be on everyone's bookshelf."

Burns will be at Owen Sound Council on Monday evening presenting the volume to the Owen Sound Library as part of the Mayor's City Poetry Challenge, initiated by Calgary mayor Naheed Nenshi to raise awareness of poetry in people's communities. Proceeds from the book, after printing costs, will be divided between the Poet Laureate Program, SOUNDS at Market , a monthly poetry and music event, and the Owen Sound Farmers' Market itself where copies will be available all month.
