Special thanks to PIV/PLV, the poets, publishers, volunteers, visionaries, and to all who attended the multitude of events, here and abroad, during National Poetry Month.

Full circle

Hoa and I met in the washroom at a CAConrad workshop four or five years ago. When we opened the shop, she asked if there was anything special I wanted to see happen, and I said for my 58th birthday, I’d like to launch a new chapbook and read with CA. Here we are. KIRBY
