My new poetry chapbook kids with Toronto’s Hurtin’ Crüe Press is complete and available for purchase from their etsy store for a modest $2, or for $15 as part of a subscription pack including a number of back items and upcoming books. It’s my second chap, with the first being 2013’s A pack of lies. The press describes the new book as “a dark, attitudinal bunch of poems about life and death and love and collages,” which sounds okay.
I’ll be reading as an opener for Sandra Ridley at In/Words‘ The Reading Series in Ottawa on Feb. 25, so grab one there if you’re around.
Adam Lannan, a Toronto poet and zinester, has started up a new press. I’m in the first issue, alongside friends Jenna Jarvis, JC Bouchard, Dalton Derkson and others. He’s giving issues out for free, so drop him a line.
Since the last update, I’ve also taken over one of the seats on CKCU FM’s Literary Landscape. You can hear my interview with Toronto’s Jess Taylor on building literary communities here; I’m hoping to put together an interviewer with some interesting folks from New York for this week, but if not… I’ll think of something.
