That poetic ode to failure, The Theory of the Loser Class, by Jon Paul Fiorentino, won the 2006 Expozine Alternative Press Award at the Expozine Awards Gala in Montreal last night (March 7, 2007).
To reflect the wide diversity of printed matter represented at Expozine, Montreal's only annual small press, comic and zine fair, six prizes are awarded: three prizes in English and three in French, for the following categories: Best book, Best comic, Best zine.
Happy April, Coach House friends! Some guy may have thought it cruel, but we're pretty sure that if he had known about National Poetry Month he'd have been into it — we sure are! In fact, to celebrate National Poetry Month, for the month of April we're discounting all of our backlist poetry titles by 30% (so everything but our three recently launched Spring 2014 poetry titles).
Poet Sina Queyras, whose new collection MxT launched this spring, discusses form, critical discourse, and the state of Canadian poetry with fellow poet Adam Sol in the April 2014 issue of Quill & Quire.
Coach House Books is putting the 'CH' in 'Kaffeeklatsch' this year. Starting in February, our coffee room will host a monthly Coach House Kaffeeklatsch! Not so much writers' workshops (there are already plenty of excellent writing workshops in Toronto) but talks and conversations with publishers and authors about the more practical aspects of being a writer and working in book publishing.
