"No More Nostalgic Poems" published in The Steel Chisel
Last month I came across The Steel Chisel, an online literary magazine run by David Emery that publishes new writing on the thirteenth of every month. I tweeted about Gary Robinson's intriguing "Amelia" and enjoyed new poems by rob mclennan, Ben Ladouceur and Ian Martin. April's issue was so good I didn't hesitate to submit some work.
And I'm glad I did; the Vancouver-based magazine has included my poem "No More Nostalgic Poems" in the May issue unveiled today. Originally conceived as part of my 'Niagara Grayscale Suite' of poems dedicated to neighbourhoods around St Catharines, "No More Nostalgic Poems" rebelled and took its own path.
Check it out alongside new writing by Roland Prevost, Pamela Mosher, Janna Payne and Jeff Blackman. I'm heading out to work shortly but looking forward to reading the whole issue once I get home.
