For its 10th season, Stone Fence Theatre is doing something new: an inspiring play that celebrates the one-room schoolhouse era and the teachers who worked so hard to help their students succeed. Schoolhouse, by Leanna Brodie, is a play that everyone who attended one of the old schools will appreciate.
Ed Huyck reviewed the play for CityPages.com. A few excerpts follow.Monday May 6, 2013 in Meta-Talon

Joanne Arnott interviews Wanda John-Kehewin about her new book In the Dog House:
I can’t really say there were many poets of the past that influenced my writing. I think when I really started to be inspired was when I heard that there were other Native writers, and that wasn’t until I moved to the West Coast in 1991. For some reason I didn’t think it was actually something an “Indian” could do. There weren’t any books in the library that were by First Nations people when I was growing up.Thursday April 25, 2013 in Meta-Talon
Garry Thomas Morse on poetry prizes and/or music in poetry. Whatever!
Not to pull an academy-bashing Joaquin Phoenix, but strictly off the record, I’ve never understood how prizes relate to poetry, exactly, and a number of acclaimed poets have confessed a similar sentiment in my presence, in one way or another. One would hope that a poet only gets into the racket out of an imperative need to do so, if not a compulsive love, implying all the emotions and forms of resentment love can contain. In that case, how can a prize for being the greatest lover compare to said love itself?
