Fall 2017 Meet the Presses Indie Literary Market — stuff I acquired

OK, I am going to attempt to get this blog going again.

I'll start with the amazing score I went home with after the November 18 Meet the Presses Indie Literary Market, at Trinity-St. Paul Centre in Toronto. It was a fantastic event. I was one of the organizers (as a member of the Meet the Presses collective). Each year, two members of the collective curate the market: this year it was Catriona Wright and me. It was also a banner year because, for the first time, the bpNichol Chapbook Award — administered by Meet the Presses and this year judged by excellent poets/excellent people Helen Guri and Hoa Nguyen — featured a shortlist comprised entirely of chapbooks by women poets. (Sonnet L'Abbé won for Anima Canadensis, published by Carleton Wilson's Junction Books.)

Here's what I went home with that day:
