BQJ Fall Launch & Editors' Reading

as part of Sunday's BQJ Fall Launch & Editors' reading tomorrow (2-3pm, Collected Works), I will read two short poems which are part of the 2nd half of my ghazal manuscript. the poems will be from the section with the working title "Hafiz: an unforgiveable translation & response."

thank you to the City of Ottawa & the Ontario Arts Council which has funded "ghazals against the gradual demise" & to the recommenders: Arc Poetry Magazine, Book Thug & Palimpsest.
the event is going to be a lot of fun with brief readings by 7 poets & music by Jesse Rose. Jesse plays baritone guitar & sings in this gorgeous low sultry voice.
this is a great way to let a  little light in during a dark month.
afterward we'll repair to the Royal Oak across the street.  please join us for poetry, music & conviviality.

don't forget to account for the time change!

Bywords is grateful to the City of Ottawa for funding us once again this year.
