This event is inspired both by Michael Turner’s legendary reading series (Reading Railroad) and Memewar’s reading series (Short Line), and features:
“writers from a variety of genres and backgrounds: from spoken word to highbrow prose – the up-and-coming, the student, and the venerable. The goal of the series is to encourage discussion and promote collaboration within Vancouver’s diverse literary community (or with members of other Canadian literary communities).”
I’ve been very inspired by the work of Michael Turner, so I’m very, very excited to read alongside him. Might even ask him to sign my copy of Kingsway or Hard Core Logo. *holds up copies and smiles like a nerd*
Also excited to hear from the other readers:
Sarah Selecky (This Cake is for the Party) http://www.sarahselecky.com/
Raj Grewal (spoken word)
And as mentioned, Michael Turner (Hard Core Logo; The Pornographer’s Poem)
Lastly, Sarah’s website / writing advice is golden!
So come on down. I’ve read at the Railway several times, and it’s always…interesting! And there’s beer.
