Pearl Pirie and I will be reading to promote the upcoming above/ground press fifteen anniversary event below:
THE FACTORY READING SERIES 15th Anniversary above/ground press Reading and Chapbook Launch
Featuring Amanda Earl (Ottawa) and Pearl Pirie (Ottawa)
Thursday, 14 August 2008
at 7:00 pm (readings at 7:30)
Pearl Pirie has been published in Womb, 1cent, ottawater 4.0, Best of MiPo Cafe Cafe, by Pooka Press and at culturalshifts.com. Her poetry is generally forthcoming, except when it isn't. She blogs. the oath in the boathouse (above/ground press) is her 6th chapbook, the 1st not self-published.
Amanda Earl will read from the small of july, a work in progress concerning dysfunctional domestic appliances with nervous ticks and natural elements that suffer from summer ennui. Amanda is the managing editor of Bywords.ca and the Bywords Quarterly Journal. Her poetry has appeared most recently in Rampike, some assemby required (pooka press) and the Peter F. Yacht Club. She is the author of two chapbooks published by above/ground press, Eleanor and The Sad Phoenician's Other Woman. Amanda's trouble making bent has led her to create a new imprint, AngelHousePress, which will publish new titles this fall and spring, including Signs of the Apocalypse Magazine. Amanda blogs too much at amandaearl.blogspot.com and ottawapoetry.blogspot.com, and she thinks it's nifty that above/ground is now a 15-year-old high school bad-ass.
