THURSTON MOORE & JOHN KINSELLA
CHAPBOOK NOW AVAILABLE !
A REMARKABLE GREY HORSE
poems by John Kinsella & Thurston Moore
It's arrived and it's beautiful! A new collaborative chapbook by award-winning poet John Kinsella, and SONIC YOUTH's founder Thurston Moore.
"A Remarkable Grey Horse is collaborative writing at its best. What could be more exciting for poetry than the collision of skateboards, Doris Day, punk rock, lighthouses, spume, skuzz, and Rimbaud?!"
"These poems start in Dolphy's key + end with a quarryman's dream. In between secrets are stored. See how many you can find."
– Clark Coolidge

NEW ISSUE 11:2 "SPEED" IS HERE !
We often wonder what the world would be like if it wasn’t in such a rush. Speed is the defining aspect of the contemporary world. Time slips by at an unprecedented rate. How and why is the world ruled by speed? How much faster can we go? How much speed can humans sustain?
In this issue, poems of Speed and Travel by Jan Zwicky, Karen Solie, Gary Barwin, Evelyn Lau, Iain Higgins and more! An exclusive interview with bill bissett and a review of Ron Silliman and others. Photography by Tobias Hutzler.

Next Issue 12:1 "SURRENDER"
What does it mean to bend, to yield? Surrender manifests in different ways: joy, despair, a willingness to give up one’s “totality” for someone or something other than him or her self. We surrender to vices, to glory, to the divine, or to the void. How do you “surrender?” Send us your best poems!
DEADLINE: November 1, 2014
For submission guidelines visit our website HERE.

POETRY FOR OUR FUTURE WORKSHOPS NOW AVAILABLE !

Alternatively, if you're involved in an organization whose clientele would benefit from our program, please also get in touch with us!

SPECIAL FUNDRAISING REMINDER !
Vallum would like to remind you, our reader, of the community work that Vallum Society for Arts & Letters Education does. Vallum is a federally incorporated charity that promotes literacy and literacy awareness through workshops in schools, women's shelters, native shelters, youth shelters, missions, and other community organisations.
As of this year, Vallum has been approved for the Quebec government Mécénat program, which is a superb fundraising opportunity because each fully tax-deductable donation to Vallum is being matched three-to-one. For every ten dollars you donate to Vallum, thirty dollars will go toward a greater understanding of literature and literacy.
To make a donation of any amount, please visit us at CanadaHelps.org.
