Crowdfunding for the Automated Poetry Project

The team at Word Vancouver is thrilled to announce an innovative new festival event: the Automated Poetry Project. Word Vancouver will transform ordinary vending machines into poetry dispensers! Poems will be placed in vending machine capsules and dispensed for just a toonie each. The machines will be in multiple locations in downtown Vancouver during the month of September 2013.

How can you help?

We need your support to launch the Automated Poetry Project. To purchase five vending machines, we need to raise $2000. All proceeds from vending machine sales will support local poets involved in the Word Vancouver festival.

Choose your support level today! There are lots of great perks including book bags, poetry books, and even your name on a poetry dispenser!

Note, if we do not reach our fundraising goal, Word Vancouver will use all the donated funds to purchase as many vending machines as possible.

Other ways to get involved:

If you would like to support the Automated Poetry Project but cannot make a donation at this time, please help spread the word about our project to your friends and consider volunteering at our event.
