Another London official press release

Another London
poems from a city still searching for itself

26 London poets offer up what it’s like to live as  a resident of The Forest City. Whether it’s the battle over the Springbank Dam (highlighted in R L Raymond’s Hoping for spring), everyday driving frustrations (Frank Beltrano’s Car Wars), a first-hand account of a recent, downtown guerilla poetry reading (as showcased in Stan Burfield’s I am standing on a crate reading Lawrence Ferlinghetti) or a visit to a variety store of sorts in Historic Woodfield (Wayne Ray’s Hippie Trippie General Store), Another London is a series of conflicts and contrasts, of making sense of the present day while acknowledging there was a previous time when residing here may have been more orderly and was questioned much less. Or perhaps it’s a way to understand the dichotomy of the love/hate relationship so many of us have with our current hometown, a city named after one much larger, more glamourous, and with a far richer history than our own. Yet because of our humbler size and standing, we clearly have a unique perspective on the world found nowhere else.
