Core Samples Launch!

A heartfelt THANKS to everyone who joined us for the launch of Core Samples: Poems from Northwestern Ontario on Wednesday 11th May 2011 7 pm at the Prince Arthur Hotel

If you missed us, don't despair. Books are still available. Check out our page on purchasing Core Samples. Also, please meander through our blog to find out more about our poetry group, Para-Tactics, and our first collaborative
book, Core Samples.

Core Samples & Beyond!

Mary reading her poems at the launch
Some bits & pieces about some of our Core Samples poets: visit to vote for Mary's first book of poetry Straightlines to represent our region in the Cross-Country Bookshelf. Sue won 3rd prize in the poetry division of NOWW's annual contest last night at the Literary Awards Party for a trio of poems judged by poet Ann Compton. In an interesting twist, one of the poems in the winning trio was a Core Samples reject! Also, at the awards, it was wonderful to see people carrying (and delving into!) copies of Core Samples. Your support is very much appreciated! Thank you!
