A one-of-a-kind interdisciplinary and collaborative event! blur blur blur brings together poets and artists who are working together for the first time to create a memorable feast for the eyes, ears, and mind. The Border Blur Reading Series is a not-for-profit cultural space committed to presenting the local Niagara community with emerging and established writers from all over Canada.


The Border Blur Reading Series is the successor to the Grey Borders Reading Series (established 2003). Operating in St. Catharines Ontario since 2014, BBRS is a not-for-profit cultural space where multiple expressions of the literary arts are channeled and given a public stage. The organization is dedicated to hosting emerging and established writers from all over Canada, specializing in experimental and avant-garde poetry, but remaining open to everything literary. BBRS is currently curated by Julia Polyck-O’Neill, and supported and informed by a diverse collective of regional poetry enthusiasts.


“I love attending the Border Blur Reading Series event each year during In the Soil Festival. For the last four years we have made the trip from Toronto to take it in and I’m already looking forward to what I know will be a great event again this year.” -Hazel Millar, Co-publisher at BookThug
