On Chapbook Making

I recently had the opportunity to answer some questions about chapbook making courtesy of Andrew Faulkner at Open Book: Toronto. I feel privileged to see Apt. 9 listed beside Toronto’s Ferno House and Toronto-via-Ottawa’s Odourless Press discussing young people making chapbooks. Mat Laporte (Ferno House) and Bardia Sinaee (Odourless) are thoughtful and articulate while I struggle along with poorly managed soccer metaphors. So it goes. Well worth a read! Get inspired to start a press, and be reminded why you started one already! The interview is in two parts. Find the second link at the bottom.

In other news, Jenn found this crate on our street on her way to the bus. My oldest sister thinks it must signal the beginning of a time travel adventure. Reports to follow from the future (or past) if such comes to pass.
