excerpts from Sessions from the Dream House Aria

has just been published in the third issue of seventeen seconds.

the third issue of seventeen seconds: a journal of poetry + poetics
is now online

edited by rob mclennan, the third issue features new works by:

Judith Copithorne
Gregory Betts
derek beaulieu
and Amanda Earl

as well as an interview with Pearl Pirie by Sean Moreland, and a second
interview between rob mclennan and Stephanie Bolster, ten years after their

seventeen seconds: a journal of poetry and poetics comes out as the
natural extension of the eight issues of edited by rob mclennan
and Stephen Brockwell. Highlighting the diversity of voice, style,
practice and politic, seventeen seconds continues the resolve to provide a
forum for dialogue on contemporary poetics, with a focus on Canadian
writing. Over the past two decades, the amount of critical writing
published in print literary journals on Canadian poetry, specifically,
seems to have decreased dramatically, but slowly returned through a number
of online journals. seventeen seconds simply wishes to help strengthen the
dialogue and the ongoing conversation about writing through publishing new
writing, and conversation about new writing. How else are we supposed to
learn anything, unless we keep talking?

Feedback and submission queries are most welcome.
