launch new poetry

Moving on up


It’s official, we’re moving.

After a glorious, unforgettable first year of revelry at Rick’s Cafe in Kensington, the cafe itself has been sold, and Toronto’s Poetry-Only bookshop is now seeking a new home.
Hundreds of you, both in person and abroad, have shared your unabashed love for KFB.
This is our first ‘ask.’ We need your help with the move.
Here’s how you can help:
  • If you know of a small business/location/landlord who would welcome and take pleasure in collaborating with us to mutual benefit, please contact me so we can be properly introduced.
  • An INDIE GO-GO campaign to raise funds to not only assist with the move, but give us the front money we’ve never had to take KFB to the next level (primarily merchandising and inventory). Here’s the link:  Please Facebook, tweet, send to help us get the word out.
  • A silent auction is in the works in conjunction with our 1st Anniversary Oct 6-8. If you have any goods and/or services you would care to donate, please contact.
Like you, I believe KFB is in a great position to make this move, exceeding the current space we enjoyed to further establish ourselves as the go-to place for poets and poetry.
Words of support, I can quote in our campaign, would be helpful.
And, if you have any other ideas to those ends, toss them my way.
Yours, I remain,
Kirby aka Poet Warrior Princess

p.s. Our final event at Rick’s will be THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 14TH, the first of #THURSNIGHTPOETS new season with JULIA POLYCK-O’NEILL, AARON TUCKER, & ANDREW MCEWEN. Locations for subsequent events TBA. KFB will operate as a pop-up until we relocate.
