Today LASERGNU releases The Isolation E.P. Because of COVID-19, we haven't been able to finish the album we've been working on, so we're releasing a few songs as an E.P. to keep us going. The new release, and our 2019 album Happy Mutations, are both PWYC (free, even!) for a limited time. We hope you enjoy it!
I taught a class on the history of self-publishing, DIY culture and the literary micropress this past semester, and as part of their final project my students made short print runs of their own chapbooks and zines. Inspired by their fabulous work, I decided to make my first self-published chapbook in twenty years!
Numbered in an edition of 50, this chapbook contains new, previously uncollected poems: a sneak peek of some of the new material scheduled to appear in Shared Universe: New and Selected Poems 1995-2020 (ECW Press, Fall 2020). To order a copy (ten bucks plus shipping), click here.
My friend Cherie Dimaline and third-year Creative Writing & Publishing student Brianna Wodabek talk to Sheridan News staff about my writing and teaching work, and Cherie goes into detail on the night we met at Rideau Hall. Read all about it here.
