This evening, I finished organizing the second edition of Bea and other poems and had the first copy printed.
Why a second edition? A few months after publishing the first edition (last summer), I discovered a Bea poem that had missed my meticulous poem-gathering. Wanting all the Bea poems together, I decided to put together a second edition. This edition includes the re-discovered Bea poem, a Bea fragment, and two other previously unpublished poems.
The second edition will officially be launched on Sunday, June 24. On that day, I will be holding a poetry reading at 1 p.m. at the Nanaimo Harbourfront Library with my friend and fellow author Katje van Loon. Katje will be promoting the re-release of her poetry book glasstown. I’m excited about the upcoming reading. If you are in town, please come check it out.
