Big, big thanks to everyone who joined us in celebrating the launch of our first issue and very special thank yous to the wonderful contributors who read their work. Tanis MacDonald (@poettanis) kicked off the readings with her feminist ode to Planet of the Apes and shared some new poems featuring the urban walker "Crazy Jane." Sonia Di Placido (@soniapoet) gave a characteristically beautiful reading that asked the audience to consider the broader social implications to be gleaned from the death of Canadian poet Pat Lowther. Sara Jane Strickland (@sarajstrickland) wrapped-up the evening with several pieces that marry the highly-personal with the mythological.
Didn't make it out? You can still get your copy of the journal here. :)
