Clocktower Brew Pub 575 Bank Street - Ottawa, Ontario
This month In/Words has the privilege of featuring Gwen Guth. She is a super cool lady and I am tremendously excited to launch this years Reading Series with her. Gwen's work has previously been showcased by ottawater, bywords, yawp, above/ground press, Friday Circle ( The Flash of Longing chapbook), Tree and the University of Ottawa Press.Gwendolyn Guth, mother of three active boys, notes that super mom and super model have far less in common than their assonance would suggest. She has the enviable privilege of talking about literature for a living, at Heritage College in Gatineau. She is a long-time supporter of and participant in Ottawa literary ventures, including Bywords, above/ground, Ottawater, yawp, Friday Circle, Rideau Review, etc. Her second poetry chapbook, Good People (above/ground press, 2010), anticipates her first trade book, due any year now and fiercely successful in her dreams. She craves inner peace but settles for outer calm.
This is not a reading to miss - I mean it - it is going to be really, really great.
There will be a reasonable open mic set with new and exciting prizes.
