Hello beautiful people!
PRISM international has partnered with Glass Buffalo
to hold an Edmonton launch for our upcoming DREAMS issue! Hosted by the amazing Matthew Stepanic and held at The Nook Cafe, we are celebrating the work of our amazing prairie poets:
// Matthew Stepanic is the editor of Glass Buffalo and poetry editor of Eighteen Bridges. He is a co-author of the collaborative novel, Project Compass (Monto Books, 2017), and the author of Relying on that Body (Glass Buffalo Publishing, 2018), a chapbook of poems about RuPaul’s Drag Race.
// Austen Lee is an emerging writer from Edmonton. This year, she won gold at the Alberta Magazine Awards for a series of poems about taking selfies. You can find more of her work in Glass Buffalo.
// Jason Purcell is a writer living on Treaty 6 territory (Edmonton, Alberta). He is co-editor of Ten Canadian Writers in Context (University of Alberta Press 2016). His poetry has appeared or is forthcoming in Contemporary Verse 2, Poetry is Dead, and Glass Buffalo.

We acknowledge that the event will take place on Treaty 6 territory, and respects the histories, languages, and cultures of First Nations, Métis, Inuit, and all First Peoples of Canada, whose presence continues to enrich our vibrant community.
Wheelchair accessible space. This event is scent-reduced: please help us keep this a welcome space for everyone and refrain from wearing scented products while attending.
