Did you miss this year’s spring poetry launches in Calgary and Vancouver? Fret not; the footage is here!
Five writers read from their latest books at the Western Front in Vancouver on April 30, 2014: one wonderful author of very short fiction – M.A.C. Farrant (The World Afloat) – and four fantastic poets – Cecily Nicholson (From the Poplars), Catriona Strang (Corked), Natalie Simpson (Thrum), and Nikki Reimer (DOWNVERSE).
The launch was hosted by two 2013 Talon poets, Dina Del Bucchia and Daniel Zomparelli, and books were sold by staff of Vancouver’s local, independent book store, the Paper Hound. Thanks to everyone who attended! We’ll see you at next year’s poetry launch!

On Meta-Talon today, please enjoy the full text of the presentation given by Carl Peters at the Modern Languages Association convention in New York City on January 7, 2018. This talk responds to the question posed in the MLA convention session Rhetoric in Post-Factual Times: how to perform textual analysis in a time when facts are no longer the marker of good argumentation. (Peters’s talk is also related to his work on Stein; Peters is recently the author of Studies in Description: Reading Gertrude Stein’s Tender Buttons.)
