Infomercial voice: Are you tired of having a regular old August 24th evening? Are you looking for something new and exciting to do the night of Thursday, August 24th? Look no further than the Poetic Places Fredericton launch party!
Ahem. Normal voice:
Poetic Places Fredericton is a mobile app. It uses push notifications to let the user know when they’ve passed by a place in Fredericton that is in some way connected to a poem written by a local poet. The user will then be able to access the poem, as well as a biography of the poet and information about the location. Currently, the app provides access to 20 poems and locales.
“The app is designed to be an engaging way to explore the city of Fredericton, while learning about its exceptional literary community and its brilliant minds.” – Poetic Places Fredericton on Facebook
While primarily designed as a way to go out and explore the poetic side of Fredericton, users will be able to discover the poetry of the city even when they’re not physically there. Upon downloading the app users will have instant access to each of the poems on the app, as well as all of the information that comes with them.
To find out more about the app, check out this blog post written by the app’s editor, Katlin Copeland.
The Poetic Places Fredericton launch party will take place on Thursday, August 24th at 6:30 pm. It will be held downtown at Westminster Books (445 King St.). It is a free event, and refreshments will be served.
Hope to see you there!
Until next time,
