Taking a quick break from the long weekend to pass along a short note, and thanks in advance for indulging me. While Montreal burns, democracy is shuttered from Quebec to Toronto and beyond, and Kim Kardashian’s role in international relations increases exponentially, I’ve been looking for a diversion. Fellow writers and publishing rogues Bryan Jay Ibeas, Ian Orti, Andrew Forbes, and I have launched an online journal called The Barnstormer. The site aims to be an open forum for longer narratives on sports-related themes, along with the occasional book review, poem, and short story. If you’re interested, have a gander. Thanks, Spry.
