“for my boston fern” in Hart House Review Winter Supplement, launching Friday!

Hi all. Happy New Year!

I know we’re already a few weeks in, but with the sleepier parts of January now long past, I’m happy to announce that one of my poems, “for my boston fern” (one of many with that title, as you might have noticed by now), will be appearing in this year’s Hart House Review Winter Supplement! A launch party for the supplement will be taking place this Friday, January 20 in the Debates Room of University of Toronto’s Hart House…Even though I won’t be able to make it, I really think you should check it out; the last time I was at one of the Winter Supplement launches, the combination of venue + fancy cheese made it one of the classiest poetry readings I’ve ever attended. Also, the fantastic and charismatic poet/musician Rasiqra Revulva will be performing, so you’d be a fool to miss it (personally, since I’m missing it, I’ll be wearing my fool hat proudly). Here’s the facebook event.

Aside from the aforementioned Rasiqra Revulva, I’ll also be sharing space in the Winter Supplement pages with (unstoppable CanLiterary force) David Huebert, as well as many others whose work I’m super-excited to read. One of my favourite things about HHR’s Winter Supplement is that it also centres its design on the work of a visual artist (this year it’s Dahae Song), which tends to produce a pretty unique reading experience. In any case, I hope you enjoy it.

“for my boston fern” on Vocamus Press Writings

More news! I’m very happy to let you know that Vocamus Press, stalwart champion of all things literary in Guelph, has graciously featured a poem of mine, “for my boston fern,” on the section of their website featuring writings by Guelph authors. The poem is a new addition to a new collection I’m working on, which is almost entirely made up of poems written for my houseplants. Read it here.

Of course, this publication is timed perfectly to get you hyped for the Guelph launch of Players tomorrow night (not to mention the London launch this Thursday, and my performance at Blur Blur Blur in St. Catharines this Friday). If you’re in the neighbourhood of any of these events this week, I hope to see you at the reading!
