update: production in the middle of production soaked by production

This blog post’s title is a paraphrase of Xie Xiangnan poem in Iron Moon. I was going to do a Coward on this book and a number of other scare quotes working class scare quotes collections but started working 6 days a week.

Rob McLellan invited me to write (& I overwrote it) about my (small press) writing day. It’s an international mix of writers, often crossing and recrossing the Canadian-American border: Buck Downs (still getting postcards), Eileen Tabios, Mugabi Byenkya (first line: “Every day I wake up wishing I was dead” – read this). In other Rob McLennan news, recently read and am reading news chaps by good rad humans/Buffalo survivors Allison Cardon and Travis Sharpe.
