Today I received my contributor´s copies and I can´t stop looking, reading and touching it.
Each page is evocative, stirring, stunning and combines art with poetry, lyrics and fiction. And Jane Callahan and Susan MacRae´s fascinating art accompanies us throughout.
Editor Dr. Charmaine Cadeau and the rest of the editorial team have crafted a beautiful composite gallery of contemporary creation. Apogee radiates a passion for real deep change accomplished by uniting an inspiring mix of eclectic voices. Their mission as they say is to effectuate change in readers’ attitudes, change in writers’ positions in literature, and broader change in society. I can assure you that reading Apogee is quite a mind-changing experience.
Six poets are featured in this is issue together with me and my poem Rewriting the End. Among them is one of my favourites, Matt Dugan with his striking alliterative poem City of Glass. Matt Duggan was the winner of The Erbacce Prize for poetry 2015.
