Greetings dear readers,
At the time of this writing, we are a mere week from the first day of Spring and it couldn't come soon enough. Thaw out after the deep freeze with four fine poems in this month's issue.
Take a look at the calendar of literary events. Get your passes and tickets for VERSeFest, Ottawa's annual poetry festival, which takes place from March 24-30 and includes local poets as well as poets from other Canadian provinces, the USA, Ireland, Chile and more. While you're making your festival-going plans, why not check out WritersFestival.Org for the upcoming Spring festival of ideas, which takes place in late April.
Festivals are perfect times to discover unknown authors, see well-loved authors, buy books and socialize with Ottawa's literati.
Thanks to our selection committee this month:
Robert Martin Evans
Carol A. Stephen
I hope to see you at the upcoming festivals. If you attend, stop by and say hi.
