Join us for the second and last Pivot of Poetry Month on April 22 with Stacey May Fowles, Liisa Ladouceur and Michelle Winters.
Stacey May Fowles is the current publisher of Shameless Magazine and the Circulation Director at The Walrus. Her first novel, Be Good, was published by Tightrope Books in 2007. This Magazine called it “probably the most finely realized small press novel to come out of Canada in the last year.” In fall 2008 she released an illustrated novel, Fear of Fighting, and staged a theatrical adaptation of it with Nightwood Theatre. Her writing has appeared in various magazines and has been widely anthologized in Nobody Passes: Rejecting The Rules of Gender and Conformity; First Person Queer; Yes Means Yes; and I.V. Lounge Nights.
Michelle Winters is a translator and technical writer from Saint John, New Brunswick. She is a founding member of Just in a Bowl Productions with whom she has co-written and performed two plays, Unsinkable and The Hungarian Suicide Duel. She devotes herself to fiction now, but still enjoys a nice set of stage directions.
Liisa Ladouceur is a poet and arts & entertainment reporter from Toronto who loves dead things and arcane words. She has performed her multimedia presentation of poetry based on street signs across North America, been published in the IndiePolitik anthology Strong Words: Year One (2006) and is the editor of Nuit Blanche: Poems for Late Nights (Royal Sarcophagus Society, 2007). Her first poetry collection, On Tenterhooks, was published by Burning Effigy Press in 2008. Her latest work is Alive! The Sideshow Sonnets, an illustrated collection of sonnets about carnival freaks published the House of Pomegrantes Press. http://www.therss.com/liisa
