Sideshow Tour Diary #8 | Flying On Your Own

Reading in Sydney was just incredible! The wonderful Sheila Christie put together an event at a local queer café called Doktor Luke’s (not named after me, by the way, haha). The local poets blew me away with their performance texts, slam poems, narratives, and attitude. Performance poetry in a Cape Breton accent needs to be… Continue Reading Sideshow Tour Diary #8 | Flying On Your Own

Sideshow Tour Diary #7 | Scuttling, Shuttling, Farts, and Sore Parts

My partner and fellow poet Carmen Ellison came on this entire tour and took almost all of the great pics you will see here. Carmen and I rode shuttle vans and buses all over the place. Here we await the Robert Q shuttle from London to Toronto. From there, we will fly to Sydney, NS,… Continue Reading Sideshow Tour Diary #7 | Scuttling, Shuttling, Farts, and Sore Parts

Sideshow Tour Diary #6 | Old Haunts, Odd Fonts

My visit to the city’s second annual Words festival was, therefore, a bit of a homecoming for me. I was honoured to be hosted by festival director Josh Lambier, my former… Continue Reading Sideshow Tour Diary #6 | Old Haunts, Odd Fonts

Sideshow Tour Diary #5 | Literary Press Group’s 40th Anniversary Party / Real Vancouver Writers’ Series

There’s not really any way to describe my pleasure of reading alongside Jane Munro (2015 Griffin winner!), Leah Horlick (curator of Reverb, and new Women’s Centre staff at SFU), and Lana Pesch (author of Moving Parts, in town from Toronto) and to be hosted by the hilarious duo of Sean Cranbury and Dina del Bucchia.… Continue Reading Sideshow Tour Diary #5 | Literary Press Group’s 40th Anniversary Party / Real Vancouver Writers’ Series

Sideshow Tour Diary #4 | Vancouver Launch Party: Little Sister’s and the Sea

This was the second of my ‘hometown’ launches, and I was fortunate enough to have Ali Blythe join me again to launch Twoism, and 2015 Dayne Ogilve-prize winner Alex Leslie read as well. We jammed the maximum amount of bodies possible into the reading corner of the store; we had young folks sitting on the… Continue Reading Sideshow Tour Diary #4 | Vancouver Launch Party: Little Sister’s and the Sea
