A huge thank you to everyone who joined us in celebrating the launch of our second issue and very special thank yous to the fabulous contributors who read their work. Marie-Andrée Auclair kicked off the evening with her reading of Jacqueline Valencia's (@JacqValencia) piece, "Micro Macro," and several of her own poems portraying the inner struggle of women in crisis. Frances Boyle read both "Preservation" and "Migrations," a work in dialogue with Daphne Marlatt, and treated us to a brand new piece. Sandra Ridley wrapped-up the evening with her long form piece, an excerpt from her forthcoming book Silvija (BookThug, Fall 2016). Thanks to Frances and Sandra for honouring poems by contributors Mallory Tater (@malatonin) and Chuqiao Yang (@chuqiaoyang) as well.
