A few recent readings

I must say, I have not been great at updating this blog page. For more up-to-date information about my happenings, do see my Twitter page.

However, I wanted to pop in here to write about two recent readings I had. One was for Lunch Poems at SFU with Adele Barclay and the other was for the Capilano Review at SFU Harbour Centre for a panel on digital poetics with Ian Hatcher and Clint Burnham. I had a great time at both events.

Two of the poems I read at Lunch Poems were recently accepted by CV2 for an upcoming issue, which I was happy to hear.

I think that’s about it for readings for me this summer, though it does sound like I’ll be a part of a panel on writers and social media in the fall as part of Lindsey Kwan‘s MA thesis.

Here are a few photos. I read as well, but did not get a picture of this. Photos of: Cara Lang & Geffen Semach (our lovely hosts), Chelene Knight, Meghan Bell, Terri Brandmeuller, and Mica Lemiski.

And I can’t remember if we listened to this one before our reading started, but this might be one of my favourite Leonard Cohen songs:
