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.


Para-Tactics is a poetry group in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada formed in 2008. It consists of five poets who gather monthly to critique and encourage each other's work and progress. Our name, Para-Tactics, is derived from the term parataxis which refers to the side-by-side placement of often dissimilar clauses or phrases.

 As a group we received an Ontario Arts Council New Works grant to focus on creating material for an anthology. Almost two years later, our first book, Core Samples: Poems from Northwestern Ontario, has emerged. We hope you read and enjoy it as much as we've enjoyed compiling it.
