2014 Poets for Change

Hey folks, it has been a while since we really wrote, but we're now gearing up for 2014's 100,000 Poets for Change event on September 27. 

Due to the hectic-ness of my life (school, work, running a press, etc.) I have talked with Michael Rothenberg, the main event organizer, about doing a virtual event this year. Vancouver will still be represented, and I hope to continue to include Vancouver poets, but we have a definite global theme this year: climate change in literature. And so, authors everywhere will be invited to participate.
