Rusty's World

Rusty’s Reading List 2017 | May 8, 2017


The third issue of oratorealis is out there and once again, in is a great set of poetry, covering a number of styles, but really tapping into the spoken word community.

As with issue #2, I have a poem inside and this time you don’t have to look too far as a poem I wrote after a George Elliott Clarke reading at Sawdust here in Ottawa is right there on the first page.

Let me just do a quick roll call of the kind of poets you will get if you pick up this issue: Sabrina Benaim, Andre Fenton, Kay’la Fraser, Amanda Hiebert, rob mclennan (!!), Aaron Simm, RC Weslowski and, of course, much more.

I am just finished and I am already looking forward to issue 4.
