Chinese BlueFront Cover
Chinese Blue
By Weyman Chan

Here is Weyman Chan at his most fiercely ironic, tracing a lineage he interprets subconsciously and through the intricacies of its raw genetic material, with keenly biting language that echoes the rhythms of Qu Yuan in contemplation of his own mortality beside the flowing waters of impermanence:

I would prefer to jump into the river and be entombed in the stomachs of fishes than to bow while purity is defiled by vulgar pestilence.

Coping with Emotions and OttersFront Cover
Coping with Emotions and Otters
By Dina Del Bucchia

Short-listed 2014 ReLit Awards, poetry category

Combining serial poetic technique with pop psychology how-to books, Dina Del Bucchia fashions punchy emotional guides in an age when illusory autonomy is achieved by “going viral” and through obsessive identification with celebrities. She tracks two otters at the Vancouver Aquarium who became famous for holding hands and were watched by millions on YouTube prompting us to meditate upon the media frustum through which we construct emotional realities.

Corked
By Catriona Strang

Catriona Strang expertly “fabricates her own reality” in poems that explore the female condition and respond to Marcel Proust’s In Search of Lost Time. In a powerful and rare display of poetic ingenuity, Strang situates classical themes of existentialism, memory, time, and the role of women in two clarifying contexts: the metaphorical mailbox of Proust and the speaker’s own body, as understood in geographical and geological terms.

CosmophiliaFront Cover
Cosmophilia
By Rahat Kurd

Cosmophilia translates multiple glittering facets of Muslim culture into, and reflects back from, the immediacy of embodied, urban Canadian experience. Allusive, playful multilingual imagery inhabits long narrative meditations, free-form couplets, and the traditional ghazal, in elegiac or sharply satirical moods.
