Description

Cobourg poet Stuart Ross believes collaboration allows him to be part of poems Ñ and the kinds of poems Ñ he would never write on his own. He also believes the best poems are ones that explode the author's own intentions. In this book, Ross takes the stage in the vaudeville act that is collaborative poetry with writers from across Canada. The results are sometimes beautifully harmonic, sometimes chaotically slapstick Ñ but they are always as unpredictable as a live performance. And with the occasional exquisite pratfall. Ross's collaborators include Kasey Ball, Gary Barwin, Alice Burdick, Sarah Burgoyne, Jason Camlot, Michael Dennis, Clarice Eckford, Tanya Finestone, Verne Good, Mark Laba, Jay MillAr, Leigh Nash, Peter Norman, Jim Smith, Gillian Sze, Paul Vermeersch, Tom Walmsley and others.

About the Authors

Stuart Ross published his first literary pamphlet on the photocopier in his dad's office one night in 1979. Through the 1980s, he stood on Toronto's Yonge Street wearing signs like "Writer Going To Hell: Buy My Books," selling over 7,000 poetry and fiction chapbooks. A tireless literary press activist, he is the co-founder of the Toronto Small Press Book Fair and now a founding member of the Meet the Presses collective, Poetry Editor at Mansfield Press, and Fiction & Poetry Editor at This Magazine. He is the author of two collaborative novels, a previous collection of stories, and six full-length poetry books. He has also published a collection of essays, Confessions of a Small Press Racketeer (Anvil Press), and edited the anthology Surreal Estate: 13 Canadian Poets Under the Influence (The Mercury Press). Stuart has taught writing workshops across Canada. He lives in Southern Ontario.
