✨Thnx to Hollay Ghadery @hollayghadery for being the first person to review our Collusion Books chapbook A TRIP TO THE ZZOO! Here’s our favourite part of this mini-review
A TRIP TO THE ZZOO is now available
✨One of almost two dozen collaborative poems appearing in our largest chapbook to date, A TRIP TO THE ZZOO (2020, Collusion Books) — available now
• full-colour variant cover (wolf or deer designs)
• limited edition of 100 numbered copies
A collection of collaborative poems that in some manner mention, reference or explore animal life; the title’s variant spelling is a deliberate gesture, signalling to the reader that the poems only share a partial resemblance to the spectacle of animal exhibition at a traditional zoo. These poems often venture into the territory of ecopoetics, with environmentally-conscious through-lines being a frequent presence in the work, either implicitly or explicitly.
Unboxing #1: A TRIP TO THE ZZOO
MA|DE chapbook unboxing No. 1 … the first of two (!) new releases we’ll be revealing in the coming week is: A TRIP TO THE ZOO — amazing to see the finished product, so pleased 😁
P.S. released by #collusionbooks with two cover variants — WOLF and DEER
Now available for pre-order!
We are happy to announce that our next chapbook, A TRIP TO THE ZZOO is now available for preorder through @collusionbooks — part of a triptych of collaborative works the press will be releasing before the end of year.
We’ll have a limited number of copies which we’ll be happy to sign, DM us directly if you want us to put a copy aside for you
A Trip to the ZZOO with MA|DE
In April, we did a small poetry reading ‘A Trip to the ZZOO with MA|DE’ (4m03s) while in quarantine for TELL OUR STORIES: TOGETHER, a new series by Friends of Canadian Broadcasting supporting Canadian artists — catch it in the ‘poetry’ section of the site (you can also explore other categories, listen to some COVID-19 comedy and several very good self-isolation music performances) … enjoy!
