Jason Camlot reads early and recent poems exploring the mysteries of distance that define our relationship to time, place and self. Critic Marjorie Perloff calls him "a remarkable poet" and poet David Trinidad says that Camlot "valiantly fights the good fight: against conformity and numbness, against that which excludes poetry from daily life." The registers of the poems read on this evening's program will range from the heartbreaking to the hilarious. Not to be missed.
On February 9, 2007 I read as part of the "Professing Poetics" event at Le Festival Voix D'Ameriques. The other readers at the event, hosted by Victoria Stanton at Casa Del Popolo in Montreal, were Dana Bath, Trish Salah, SE Venart, Endre Farkas, Stephanie Bolster and Susan Gillis.
On September 16, 2006 I read with Robert Allen at the launch of his new book, The Encantadas (Conundrum Press) at Boa Bar in Montreal.
Rob passed away on Friday, November 3rd, 2006.
