Going to be in Toronto this Wednesday? Join us for a Pivot Readings at the Press Club event featuring Guernica poets Catherine Black and Melanie Janisse alongside Claudia Dey.

Catherine Black is the author of Lessons of Chaos and Disaster, a collection of poems that explore moments of empathy in suffering, epiphany in ruin, and grace in surrender.  Melanie Janisse is the author of Orioles in the Oranges, a collection of poems that tells the story of love and loss as they find common ground in a Metis legend and in modern times.  Both books were published as part of Guernica’s First Poet Series, which features first full poetry collections by writers 35 and younger.
