The return of Hunkamooga

My column "Hunkamooga," which ran in Word: Toronto's Literary Calendar for about four years, is back, this time in sub-Terrain, a triquarterly out of Vancouver. Not thrilled with the frequency, but if I keep writing the column right on deadline, or slightly after, it'll be fairly fresh. Plus, I'm actually getting paid, which is nice.

My sub-Terrain piece "I Hate Poetry," which appeared a couple issues ago, was to have been the first new Hunkamooga column, but they forgot to include "Hunkamooga" on the page. The new column is about novel-writing. Sort of. It's the first piece of writing I've completed in well over a month.

The Hunkamooga columns for Word — at least, revised and expanded versions — made up the bulk of my book Confessions of a Small Press Racketeer, which was published by Anvil, the press that shares an owner/editor with sub-Terrain. I think I've gotten far more response for that book than I have for my poetry or fiction books cumulatively.

Over and out.

Stu, that's nonsense. Your poetry (and prose) is superb, and everyone who's read it or who's heard you read it knows it.

Define response.
