The launch of spring Volume V

...was held tonight at the Hotel Saskatchewan in Regina. Nine of the contributors read. I was sitting near the front, but from what I could tell from a quick crank of the head, there was a good crowd.

It was great to chat face to face with writers, friends and fellow bloggers. Here's a pic of Tracy Hamon, Kelly-Anne Riess, whose work appears in this volume of spring, and me.



And it was great to see my pop culture mentor, Paula Jane Remlinger, whose work appears in this volume as well. Here's the two of us.



And here's me with Gerry Hill, the editor and poetry editor of this volume of spring.


Gerry is hosting the open mic on Saturday at the conference. I'm looking forward to it. It's always a great time and his introductions are legendary.

You have a certain leporidian charm in the one with Gerry...

Ha! I should have photoshopped the pic and put those ears over his head.

In the first pic it looks like I finally swallowed my tongue.

In the top two pics you'll notice my black fingernail. I got that when we were doing the floor. It has grown out a bit, but it's taking forever. It makes me look totally stupid in a skirt.

I recognize that scarf!

Brenda Schmidt said...

Good eye! I always think of you when I wear it.

Paula Jane said...

Looking good! I'm so glad you and H were there for the launch.

I'm glad we were there, too! You rocked!
