We have two big events this month!
Noni Howard’s The Birth of Venus has just gone online, about a month after Noni’s death at her home in Half Moon Bay, California. It’s possible we’ll do a second title by Noni, culled from the poems she sent to us over the last year.
Next is our joint Ekstasis Editions/Coracle Press book launch, this Saturday, December 1st, at La Petite Marche in Montreal’s Plateau neighbourhood. Coracle Press will launch our new chapbook series: Soldiers at Lachine by Lynn Hart; Follow Me: The Coyote Poems by Carolyn Zonailo; and The Coat Poems by Stephen Morrissey. This is Series One of our chapbook series, Series Two will be launched sometime in the winter/spring of 2013.
We are also joining with Ekstasis Editions, based in Victoria, BC in this book launch. Fight Fire With Spirit: Selected & New Poems (Ekstasis Editions, 2012) is a major publication by Carolyn Zonailo. Most of the poems in the book were published during the twenty years Carolyn lived in Montreal or divided her time living in Montreal and Vancouver.
