Delta Literary Arts Society Launches With Halloween-Themed Show – North Delta Reporter


The newly launched Delta Literary Arts Society (DLAS) is wasting no time in bringing its first event to North Delta audiences.

On Saturday, October 23, the company is hosting Killer Verse: A Night of Literary Terror, a multi-faceted production featuring “undead” costumed actors and ushers, at the new North Delta Center for the Arts.

“Nothing says Halloween more than spooky campfire stories,” DLAS President Angela Rebrec said in a press release.

The event will feature fiction and poetry from Canadian horror writers, including performances by local actors.

“Leave your children at home,” warns Rebrec. “We’ve upped the scary factor for this event.”

Killer Verse is the first event hosted by the newly incorporated society, whose mission is to promote the literary arts in Delta by hosting events and programs to foster creative writing, communications, self-expression and healing, according to the group’s Facebook page. .

“We want to nurture the literary talents of Delta’s students, emerging and established writers,” DLAS Treasurer Diana Calliou said in a press release.

“Art connects people – that’s how we form a tight-knit community.”

If fear isn’t your thing, DLAS has a whole host of events planned for the coming year, including open-mic theme nights, writing and creativity workshops, and sponsored readings.

“There was such a black hole for events at Delta when it came to promoting and learning to write,” Rebrec said. “In the future, we’d like to sponsor contests, anthologies, mentorships — anything about writing that promotes expression, self-esteem, and healing.”

Tickets for Killer Verse: A Night of Literary Terror are $15 and available through Eventbrite or by emailing [email protected] Show time is at 7 p.m. and snacks and drinks will be available on site.
