About The Olive
Now into our eighteenth season, The Olive Reading Series is one of Canada’s longest running live literary events.
Since 2000, poetry lovers in Edmonton, Alberta have gathered on the second Tuesday of the month from September to April to enjoy a unique mix of emerging and established literary talent.
The Olive has proudly featured poets from Edmonton and across the country, as well as international poets.
National and International Award winning writers have shared the stage with brilliant up-and-coming poets and creative writing students.
Edmonton audiences are legend in their support and passion for the literary arts and after our featured reader, The Olive Reading series will often open the stage to hear what some of our local talent has brought.
