Pleasant Surprise

Definitely Superior, an artist-run collective based in Thunder Bay, recently launched the anthology Fuel under its burning.books.press imprint.

In it, I have a creative nonfiction piece entitled "Go to a Deaf Event." Visually, it's a poem but it's actually nonfiction. I wrote it in late 2009 and I didn't really think about it again until I saw it in the anthology.

Reading it was a (gasp) pleasant surprise--I remember pushing against "creative nonfiction" forms during the writing process. And remembering a time when you were excited about learning something is almost as much fun as the learning itself. (Almost.)

Here's a link to a version that retains the proper formatting of American Sign Language terms.

Best of luck to DefSup and burning.books.press!
