The Slow Canoe Live Journal — Winter 2018

August 10, 2018 @ 7:00 pm AEST

The Slow Canoe is a live journal event in Melbourne, a chapbook press, and this website, which includes the interview series ‘Walks with Writers’.

At their live journals, they present works of fiction, non-fiction, poetry, film, music, photography and graphic pieces, as well as those that exist between forms. They aim to give a platform for all forms of narrative, whatever they look like.

As Bella Li, a wonderful Asian Australian often featured in Peril Magazine, the creator of The Slow Canoe, puts it, ‘Perhaps, it’s not so much “existence between forms” (because you could keep endlessly dividing the pie) as the way in which such projects show how formless and porous forms can be, in the sense of there being acute resonances between, say, non-fiction and poetry, or photography and music.’

The Slow Canoe Live Journal — Winter 2018 is comprised of fiction, poetry, short film, chapbook, photography and panel discussion. The panel includes, in addition to Alena Lodkina and Kristian Haggblom, Eleanor Jackson — a poet, arts producer, former editor-in-chief of Peril Magazine, former board member of Queensland Poetry, and current Board Chair of Peril Magazine and board member of the Stella Prize.

A fantastic program from a fantastic journal.

Price: $12 with chapbook
