Look out, language! Three poets pushing the aesthetic envelope take the Press Club stage on the 9th of March – Margaret Christakos, Adam Seelig, and Mark Truscott. It’s going to be a fantastic night of spillage, silence, and (slow) (s)welling.
Margaret Christakos grew up “with hills, rock, lakes and short cuts” in Sudbury, Ontario, where winter was winter and summer was a fresh water lake called Ramsey. She is the award-winning author of seven acclaimed poetry collections and a novel, Charisma, shortlisted for the Trillium Book Award. She teaches creative writing and runs Influency: A Toronto Poetry Salon at the University of Toronto School of Continuing Studies. Her most recent collections are Welling (Your Scrivener Press 2010), What Stirs (Coach House 2008) and Sooner (Coach House 2005), which was shortlisted for the Pat Lowther Award.
Adam Seelig is the author of Every Day in the Morning (slow) (New Star Books 2010) and Talking Masks (BookThug 2009). Seelig is a poet, playwright, stage director, and the founder of One Little Goat Theatre Company in Toronto, with which he has premiered works by Yehuda Amichai, Thomas Bernhard, Jon Fosse and himself.
