If you are literary at all (whatever that means), you have probably already discovered The Millions, which is an online literary magazine of great interest. If you haven't discovered it yet, check it out.
I should mention, also, that Westjet's poet of the skies, Wendy Morton is reading this Friday and Saturday at Springworks in Stratford. Her latest book, which she will have with her and may, possibly, (remember I said possibly) give some of them away to lucky people, was commissioned by the Torngat Mountains National Park people. Torngat is in Labrador. It's wild, remote and beautiful.
Wendy is at St John's United Church at 10 am on Friday and at The Gallery Stratford at 2pm on Saturday. Go Wendy!
On Sunday, local prize winning poet Gay Allison will be reading at 2pm at The Gallery Stratford, also as part of the SpringWorks Festival.
Also, for all of you who are or want to be poets, there is an Open Mike at the Stratford Public Library on May 22 at 7:30 pm. More on this later.
