West meets...west.

So I forgot to mention that the fall tour I'm embarking on has two phases.

A three day Brandon/Saskatoon/Regina leg with Winnipeg poets Jonathan Ball and John Toone and then a four day Toronto/Ottawa leg with Regina poet Tracy Hamon.

I'm looking forward to hazing the Jon/Johns on our trip. I haven't told them that I've found accommodation (with poets!) in Saskatoon and Regina for myself but not for them. Yet.
