about SHIFT & SWITCH:
Over 2 years in the making and featuring 41 avant-garde poets from across Canada in almost 200 pages, SHIFT & SWITCH challenges the reading and writing status quo, and questions what a poem may be.
While contemporary poetry anthologies may emphasize traditional lyric poetry, SHIFT & SWITCH offers a unique alternative: radicality, experimentation and innovation with sound, visual elements, mathematics, surrealism and ‘pataphysics.
Crack open the spine to this highly anticipated collection, and discover Canada’s next generation of innovative poets and their work!
