I believe it has something to do with my having the shortest name of anyone in the group. Though *this just in* Evelyn "same number of letters in her name" Lau has been added to the bill. Too late for me to have company on the poster, though...
Anyway, I'll be reading my almost-accepted ("not-totally-rejected"?) poem, "Ouchton Bay, Cape Scott, Kwakiutl Territory" (thanks, Prairie Fire, for originally publishing it), along with a poem or two from The Other Side of Ourselves, and one poem actually included in the anthology, Al Rempel's "We Love Bananas" (because, well, how can one resist a title like that?). It should be a great evening.
The details, in case you don't like looking at posters:
