It’s party time! Help us launch Bending the Continuum!

Our friends over at Hot-Sauced Words are hosting the launch party for Dane Swan’s first poetry book, Bending the Continuum, and we’d love to see you there!  James Dewar will host the event and guests will be treated to readings by Dane’s friends, a Dane-inspired Poetry Themed Challenge and best of all, a reading by Dane himself, who is an accomplished slam poet.

Where: Black Swan Tavern, 154 Danforth (east of Broadview) – 2nd floor, Toronto
When: Thursday, June 16th from 8 – 11 PM

The poems in Bending the Continuum are slave to no genre. Science-fiction, alternative realities, and time are fluid. Form, voice and space in this collection borrow from multiple canons. Dane’s first book is equal parts Can-lit, Harlem Renaissance, the Caribbean oral tradition known as Griotism, Roddenberry, hip-hop and dark-humour. Bending the Continuum has been published as part of Guernica’s First Poet Series, which features first full poetry collections by writers 35 and younger.
