We are thrilled to announce that we will launch our first issue, Crosswalks, at the Edmonton Poetry Festival, at noon on Monday April 17, 2017 at the Marshall McLuhan House!
At our event The Polyglot: Multilingual Horizons, eight of the poets featured in our first issue will read their poems and discuss the intersections between poetry and languages.
Axel Pérez Trujillo Diniz
After the readings, the poets will discuss how different languages have expanded their poetic horizons. Some guiding questions will be: Why write in languages other than English? How have you experimented with languages in your poetry? How does your writing process differ in each language? What advice would you give to others who would like to try their hand at writing in a second or foreign language?
Please join us for an afternoon of poetry, languages, snacks, and fun!
Cost: Pay what you can
Hard copies of the magazine will be on sale
