Echolocation, a beautiful annual magazine produced by graduate English students at the University of Toronto, just published its fourteenth issue, and I am pleased to announce that within its pretty pages are two new poems by me!
The launch of issue 14 is happening next week, on Thursday, October 23, at 7:30pm EDT in Toronto. In my absence, I have trusted friend and fellow poet Laura Ritland (recent winner of The Malahat Review‘s Far Horizon Award for Poetry) to perform my poems for me. If you’re in Toronto, then I highly encourage you to head down to No One Writes to the Colonel at 460 College Street to hang out with Laura and take in some of the fine literary offerings from the magazine’s other contributors. Click here to RSVP to the event on Facebook! I know it will be a very fun evening, and I wish that I could be in two places at once!
After the launch on the 23rd, the magazine will become available for ordering online on the Echolocation website. Especially if you’re not in Toronto to buy a copy at the launch, I highly encourage you to order yourself a copy! If you need extra enticing, then I’ll leave you with this: the poetry I’ve written that is featured in the issue includes the appearance of Lacanian literary theory, the Incredible Hulk, and a protoctologist’s office. And as my friend Rebecca Hales (a talented screenwriter and a current resident of the prestigious 2014 Bell Media Prime Time TV Program) said, when I mentioned the poems to her, “Hulk AND a proctologist?!? What more does a girl need in a poem?”
