Hamilton's gritLit Festival started as small and intimate, with readings taking place in the Staircase Theatre. Over the past seven years, gritLIT has evolved into a larger-scale and wider-reaching endeavor. It has spread out to encompass a number of venues including the Art Gallery of Hamilton, the Workers' Arts and Heritage Centre, the Sky Dragon Centre, the Westside Concert Theatre, and, in previous years, the Dowtown Arts Centre and the Hamilton Conservatory for the Arts.

The festival kicks off with an evening of poetry in partnership with the Hamilton Poetry Centre. Featuring literary guests:

Gary Barwin - The Porcupinity of the Stars

Evelyn Lau - Living Under Plastic

Karen Solie - Pigeon

Tickets are $10 at the door ($8 for Students/Seniors/Underemployed).
