Performers Café starts new season
The Saskatchewan Festival of Words kicked off its new season of its popular event Performers Café at Mitsu Café on Thursday, September 7th. Along with several performances, ranging from songs, to poems and reading excerpts from short stories, the Festival of Words also announced its 2017/18 Performers Café RBC Emerging Artist Award.
The winner of the award was poet and writer Terri Bosner, a popular performer at Festival of Words’ Performers Café. Along with the award, Bosner was presented with $1,000.
The Saskatchewan Festival of Words started this award to support headliners at Performers Café. “During the month of August, the public voted for their favourite performer and the winner receives a plaque and $1,000,” said Amanda Farnel, Operations Coordinator at Festival of Words. Bosner expressed thanks for receiving the award. The next Performers Café will be held on Thursday, October 25.
