We are pleased to share with you all the First Voyages of Dark Canadee.
Dark Canadee, is a twisted poetry fantasy, set in an alternative Canada Water, and tailor-made by T.S. Eliot Prize-nominated Glyn Maxwell for the times in which we find ourselves. The project takes the form of a serial literary fiction where, each fortnight, 6 poets sail into a dark port to take shelter from a swirling plague and join clandestine writing workshops. The world is fabricated, but the poems are real, submitted by participants before each voyage, and Glyn’s feedback on these is genuine, being skilfully woven into each narrative. Part avant-garde tutorial, part publishing experiment, this promises to be a unique experience and we hope you would like to join us for these first sessions.
The next 3 voyages are scheduled for 24 March, 7 April, and 21 April, with the submissions being due on those dates and each new instalment being published one week later. You can book your voyage here.
