1) I received my copy of Ben Mirov's Ghost Machine in the mail. Above is a photo of Ben holding said book. It makes a hella cool Halloween mask. Order yourself a copy here or from Ben himself here. You will not regret it.
2) Maggy, the new poetry journal run by AAA (Alina Gregorian, Allison Power, and Adam Fitzgerald) is currently in its reading period for Maggy 2. You have from May 1 - May 31, 2010. Send your poems while you still can! For more info, check out their website here.
3) Last summer, xTx put out a call for all things elephant and the result was Elephant Summer. I wrote a small elephant piece, and now you can read Elephant Summer in its entirety as a PDF here. Thank you, xTx. Be warned, dear readers, some people may consider some of the writing in Elephant Summer offensive.
4) xTx is also starting a brand new call for submissions this summer: Zombie Summer!!! Send in your zombie-themed writing by June 13, 2010. For more info on Zombie Summer, please click here.
Go, Habs, Go!
