Silver Car Sessions

Jake Kennedy captures the daily lives of poets. Since the days of Robert Frost, all poets have driven silver cars. It makes them particularly easy to identify (fiction writers: minivans). For some reason, Jake and his creepy friend Kevin thought i might make a good interview subject.

I showed them.

It seems that there's another blog called poetactics over on wordpress. Bizarre.

It's not me, so we're clear.

Over the next few days i'll be at the Canadian Creative Writers and Writing Programs conference & founding convention. While i'm not sure i'll have the time to blog it in any kind of thorough manner (would that even be interesting to anyone other than me?), i will definitely do some tweeting using the #CCWWP hashtag. Tomorrow's schedule looks good; i plan on attending the Workshops in Creative Writing and the Technology and Creative writing panels.

This year, i'm working as a writer-in-the-school at a jr./sr. high school, so this conference couldn't have come at a better time. i'm excited for the chance to glean some knowledge from more experienced creative writing teachers.

That said, i skipped out on the first evening, but it looks like @kipress caught some good moments.

Tonight i was at Flywheel (for those who don't know, it's a monthly reading series in Calgary held on the first Thursday of every month at Pages bookstore on Kensington). It was a really great reading: Patrick Horner pulled off a cool multivocal text, Jen Kunlire always has great delivery, and Gary Barwin was energetic and hilarious. A fun night!
