A list of the Globe and Mail’s National Poetry Month is here.

Poetry launch: Paul Tyler launches his new collection of poems A Short History of Forgetting. May 1 at 7 p.m. at Raw Sugar, 692 Somerset St. West, with music by the Dustbowl Daddies

Over in NY there’s the Chapbook fair May 3-4 that seemed fun last year

Books anticipate the future of theatre, TV and cinema: No need for lineups. No time mark to hit. No expiry of tickets. Order and start times completely in the hands of consumers.

Coming to the paper page this fall: Poets on Teaching: A Sourcebook, edited by Joshua Marie Wilkinson (University of Iowa Press, September 2010). It includes 99 short essays on teaching poetry by 101 poets including Rae Armantrout, Julie Carr, Oliver de la Paz, Linh Dinh.
