A new online showcase for poetry at Vancouver Island University launches next month.

Poetree is a digital poetry project website that will feature an online poetry tree that will blossom once a month with new selected poems written by students, faculty and staff.

The launch of Poetree – Dec. 5, 4 p.m. in the Royal Arbutus Room, above the main cafeteria – is being held in conjunction with the end of the year creative writing students gathering.

At the launch, there will be selected poems read from the first blossoming of Poetree, music, a piñata and door prizes.
