How about spending the longest day of the year not only north of the 60th parallel but in the company of award-winning poets? The Whitehorse Poetry Festival takes place in Yukon from Thursday 20 to Sunday 23 June and it's going to be a good one. Stephanie Bolster, Brad Cran, Jamella Hagen, Ian LeTourneau, Bren Simmers, Garry Thomas Morse and Jo Shapcott are all in the line-up, along with Wolsak and Wynn editor Noelle Allen and Brick Books general manager Kitty Lewis.
