My poem is out in issue # 146 of The Antigonish Review (TAR). It’s entitled “carriage” and appears on page 114. (My name is near the bottom of the table of contents.) I don’t care that I’m way in the back. I’m still pretty pumped. Here’s the contributor’s page. You can’t read the actual poem online. You’ll have to buy the issue. Copies will run you about $10 apiece.
In other news, these days I’m all about the events. Last night I went to the Women in Film and Video Martini Madness party, which was interesting. I got complimented on my dress ($5 at Value Village, baby) so that was enjoyable. Next up is the Mara Gottler fashion show tomorrow evening, which is a part of BC Fashion Week. Then, Craig arrives (late Friday night – he’s coming for the weekend), and on Saturday we’re hitting a birthday party before heading out to my magazine’s We Love FashION Party (get it?). Sunday is a recovery day, though Craig really wants to go to Lumiere. We’ll see. I’m not feeling very fancy pants.
I’m writing a lot about these sorts of events on the Beyond Robson website. If you’re interested in reading that sort of thing, you can subscribe to my RSS feed. (That stands for Really Simple Syndication, for those of you mouldies who haven’t heard of it.)
Finally, my friend Patty and her mum have been raising money for ALS in honour of my friend (their family member) Lori, and as of yesterday, they surpassed their $5000 goal. If you want to give to the fund, you can do so easily online. Sure, overall Lori’s ALS is a really sad thing, but beating the fundraising goal is something to be happy about.
Things are looking up.
Anyway, bizzy bizzy. I am bizzy.
