"now known as an angelic upstart from coast to coast in Canada, [knife fork book] started out in 2016 and has blossomed into one of the top must-read venues for poets from all over North America."

Nathaniel G. Moore, Verbicide Magazine

“I simply cannot imagine the Toronto Lit scene without Kirby and knife | fork | book.” Jim Johnstone, Poet. Publisher, Anstruther Press

“Toronto is one lucky bitch.” Damian Rogers, Poet.

Now in our fourth year, KFB continues to thrive as the destination for poets and poetry, launching our new KFB Poetry Lab, Saturday Afternoon In Store Series, and our Signature Series, KFB FRIDAYS. We have one aim, to champion poets and poetry. Join us.
$788.77 of $1,200 per month
OUR GOAL is to reach $1200/month (120+ Patrons) to cover our base costs to remain open and SOAR in our NEW FULLY ACCESSIBLE HOME at ARTSCAPE YOUNGPLACE MEZZANINE LEVEL 180 Shaw Street (beginning late Sept 2019)

A $5 - $10 patron is the equivalent of what is often a suggested PWYC per reading at other venues. Our weekly readings are generally FREE and open to the public thanks to the generosity of all involved.

KFB holds a very special place for poets and poetry. Thanks for making it so. Join today.
