Celebrate Our Spring Launch on June 23

POSTED: June 16th, 2017

We’re having a party, and you don’t have to wait until November! Come join the staff and seven stellar contributors to celebrate the launch of Issue 37: Spring 2017 on Friday, June 23 at Reunion Island Coffee (385 Roncesvalles Ave., Toronto)! We will be featuring readers from both our Spring and Winter 2017 issues in several sets throughout the night. As always, there will be plenty of time to talk, drink, and have a good time (no word yet on the state of Reunion Island’s dance floor).

The party gets going at 7:30 p.m. and runs to midnight. We’ll be selling beer and wine to raise money for The Puritan, so that we can publish more great writing in future issues. And you can bet it will be a deal. Super-secret after-party location TBA.

There will be readings from:

Robin Richardson
Michelle Brown
Adebe DeRango-Adem
Stephen Thomas
Matthew J. Trafford
Rob Benvie
& Sue Sorensen

Check out the Facebook event (and share it with your friends). Say hello to the contributors, the editors, and the staff. Enjoy readings from seven incredible writers and support literary arts by buying beer. We’ll also be giving away FREE ENTRY to our Sixth Annual Thomas Morton Memorial Prize in Literary Excellence. Skip the entry fee and get your work read by one of 2017’s incredible judges, Suzanne Buffam (A Pillow Book) in poetry and Heather O’Neill (The Lonely Hearts Hotel) in fiction.

It’s our first Spring Launch ever. We hope to see you all there!
