i am super excited (okay, like, beyond super excited) to officially announce that i will be heading on tour this october! four other poets (Cameron Anstee, Jeff Blackman, Rachael Simpson, and Justin Million) and i will be taking our poetry on the road & will be stopping by a city near you (hopefully!).
we’ll have chapbooks and broadsides on hand as well as a book just for the tour, published by Apt. 9 Press and featuring new writing by all five poets. the book, Five, is currently being printed at Coach House in toronto, as if i weren’t excited enough. in addition to new writing from everyone, you’ll also have the chance to hear first-hand accounts of our #poetrytour experience.
we’ll be reading in four cities (ottawa, montreal, toronto, and peterborough) over five days, all between long hours together on the road in jeff blackman’s honda accord. please visit our tour website for dates/times/venues, plus more info on the poets and the book.
you can also follow me on twitter, where i’ll be tweeting more info as we get closer to our tour kick-off date in ottawa. #anaccordofpoets #itsallhappening #poetrytour #yathatsright
Five days, four cities, one book (printed by Coach House Books, designed and conceived by Apt. 9 Press), chapbooks, broadsides, booze, two hotel rooms, men open mouth kissing, beards, black clothing, smoke, electricity, water, one sweet Honda Accord with the windows up and the music up and the leaves falling down, and YOU!
