Hamilton's literary community continues to distinguish and diversify itself, in part thanks to fresh enterprises like Hamilton Review of Books and The Inlet, but also because young publications like The Paper Street Journal keep themselves imbedded in every corner of the arts.
This month PSJ celebrates the release of Issue #4, which is available to read in full right here. It's a fine showcase of artwork, photography and writing by Hamilton-area artists. My poem "Evergreen" is also included, so check it out!

Hamilton's annual literary celebration, grit LIT, is in full swing this weekend and I'm happy to get involved. I'll be reading at an event called Drafts and Drafts, which asks visiting and local writers to share works-in-progress over pints. Drafts over drafts, what an idea.
Drafts and Drafts happens Sunday, April 9th (4:30pm) at the excellent Mills Hardware and features Wayne Grady, E. Graziani, Shane Neilson, Merilyn Simonds, Marnie Woodrow and myself. Tickets are $12 in advance or $15 at the door and a drink ticket is included in the price.

I missed the launch of Hart House Review's winter supplement back in January, but my contributor copies just arrived in the post. Thanks to new Managing Editor Sophia Savva for sending them over!
The plan was to upload a photo of my poem (since I'm not sure if it's available to order) but, better yet, the whole supplement is now live on HHR's website.
So far really enjoying the work by Josh Silver, Emmy Fu and John Nyman. Anyway, here's "Turkey Pond".
