A new home for Spearmint

TPV has been very busy this fall, and the fun continues with a new location for our Spearmint machine at Zoots Cafe. This beautiful Dundas and Dufferin coffeehouse is run by Windsor-import-poet Melanie Janisse, who has generously made space on the wall for our slim little crank-operated contraption. Join us October 17 for a launch, featuring readings by poets from our brand new fall 2010 issue and hosted by TPV co-publisher Elisabeth De Mariaffi. Check the details and RSVP here.

In other news, TPV will be featured on CBC Radio 1 program The Next Chapter this week, so keep your ears peeled. If you miss it, never fear, we’ll post the link here soon. Thanks to Linda Besner for the love!

Plus, TPV will have a table at the one and only Canzine in Toronto on Oct. 24. Stay tuned for more on that soon.
