Our projects fall into three main categories: microchaps, our quarterly zine (small poems for the masses), and other dreams (broadsides, unconventional publications, etc).
July 2018’s project is FOR BABIES! a diatribe against Ottawa’s mountains by Dessa Bayrock. This micro-essay is a creative non-fiction recounting of Dessa’s first hike after moving to Ontario from B.C., which went about as well as you might expect given that B.C. has world-famous mountains and Ontario has almost none. It is set against a collage of mountain images cut from vintage science textbooks. FOR BABIES! is in its first printing of 50 copies. It is cut, folded, and numbered by hand.
August 2018’s project is Landing, a poem by Angela Caravan. This frank and lyrical poem about the meaning of the moon landing — to the moon, to the feet that touched it, to those stuck back on earth — is set on a watercolour background. Landing is in its first printing of 50 copies. It is cut, folded, and numbered by hand.
September 2018’s forthcoming project is small poems for the masses, volume one, the first volume of our quarterly zine featuring six poets.
