Top poetry happening in Ottawa in 2008: Re: Reading the Post Modern, Canadian Literature Symposium at the University of Ottawa, May, 2008

[if things seem a little balanced in favour of the first six months of 2008, i guess it’s because i haven’t attended as many readings or blogged about them in the last six… and surely there must have been memorable poetry readings in the last six months, why is it that i didn’t blog, why can’t i remember? what do you remember?]
