What comes along every 25 years and goes like lightning? It’s the Quicksilver Blinks and the thermometer will be rising at—of course—the Mercury Room. It’s poetry that won’t stand still! It’s a shimmy and shimmer of words!

The Stroll of Poets’ annual blitz of 30-second poems takes on extra polish this year. We’re celebrating the Stroll’s 25th anniversary as Edmonton’s friendliest poetry gathering. So shine up your lines and show us your metal!

All are welcome to deliver a Quicksilver poem. Or just come to hear poems that will roll along faster and brighter than beads of mercury on a mirror.
