Here’s the headline:
ONE OF KFB’s BIGGEST EVENTS EV-VAH! SCARBOROUGH COMES OUT & SUPPORTS THEIR OWN!
Not only the biggest, but the FRESHEST BRIGHTEST NEW WORK HEARD IN A LONG TIME!
So much to be celebrated here, poets, but what stands out most besides the work itself, is the gushing well-spring of genuine love and support carried for each other…so rare, and essential moving forward. Never forget the heart of this glorious day. Mark it. Build upon it. All possibilities grow from this place. I, for one, am deeply moved and thankful for the reminder (as Toronto sorely NEEDS this, but you know that already).
“Joining forces.” Your delight for each other’s successes, for SARAH HILTON with her new Anstruther Press chapbook, SALTWATER LACUNA and VICTORIA MBABAZI‘s KFB bestseller, FLIP, and for all seeking to get their poems out into the world!
KUDOS to Ryan Fitzpatrick and UTSC English Department ENGC86 Creative Writing: Poetry II students [listed below], and to the launch of THE GIRLS WHO GET IT, GET IT.
