Hello hello!

Hello Toronto, my beloved hometown. Yes, I've moved to St. John's, and yes it's beautiful, affordable, and friendly here, but you'll always be the place I look to wistfully and wonder what could have been.

I'm glad to be here and hope to bring you some interesting stuff. I'll take questions, should you have them, about whatever, but the things I know more about are poetry, fiction, new media (esp blogging), the book publishing industry, the literary "scene" (whatever that means), etc. Please feel free to ask away.
