During an evening of wine, cheese, Miss Vicki's potato chips, and Spanish olives stuffed with mini jalapeƱos, the Crackers, an intrepid group of Saskatchewan poets met to celebrate Steven Ross Smith’s new position as Director of Literary Arts at the Banff Centre. Also celebrated was Jennifer Still's regional win in the CBC Poetry Face Off, beating fellow crackers Steven and Mari-Lou Rowley. Fashion, hair styles, poetic process, and thanks to Hilary Clark, Laynie Brown’s book The Scented Fox were also topics of conversation. Mari-Lou read from her new ms. Suicide Psalms, to be published by Anvil Press in fall 2008. The evening culminated in this blog, which is dedicated to poetic funambulists everywhere. Enjoy
