Last night the Art Bar put on an amazing Love Lounge, which I was thrilled to be a part of. A stellar line up of poets, including Amanda Hiebert, Priscila Uppal, Norm Cristofoli, Sandra Kasturi and David Silverberg. Not to mention the sweet sounds of Romeo Satin and the hot hot open mic featuring Electric John, Arina K. & Jillian Christmas! After that I’ll be concerntrating my efforts on the third annual YRDSB Spoken Word Festival, featuring National Slam Champions The Recipe, on March 2nd… Coming up next is a feature at the incredible Coburg Poetry Workshop on March 18th, followed by a return to the Art Bar on March 21st. I’ll finish off the month at Queen’s University’s The Grad Club, featuring alongside Krystle Mullin & Amanda Hiebert. Things are quiet until May 20th, when I’ll be launching my first full length collection of poetry, entitled The Cartographer’s Skin. I’ll spend the spring touring Ontario, so please contact me if you are looking to book features at your reading series (or know of one that might be a good fit). I’ll be at the Vancouver Youth Poetry Slam on July 4th, and plan to spend a bit of July on the west coast traveling and visiting cohorts.. More dates to follow in the next few weeks. Thanks again to all who came out last night and made it a fantastic evening.
Thanks, as always, for listening.
