I Don't Feel So Good

I Don't Feel So Good has arrived in the BookThug warehouse! This limited edition collection is comprised of material selected from the handwritten journals and notes of Elizabeth Bachinsky (A.K.A. me) from 1986-2012. Lines and passages were selected by the roll of a die and appear in the order the die saw fit. The BookThug catalogue says, "In blending confessional and procedural techniques with disjunctive chronology and random chance, this book explores and exacerbates possibilities of the narrative mode both within the text and for the reader. Not so much 'written' as 'received.'" OK! Proceeds from the sale of this book go to the Chris Reimer Legacy Fund Society, so please contact BookThug to order your copy as soon as possible. Apparently they are going fast. Lots of love. Liz xo

Under-City: Writing The Suburban World

The Creative Writing Department at Kwantlen invites you to a day of panel discussions, workshops and readings on what it means to be a suburban writer or to write about the suburbs. I'll be reading tonight with David Chariandy Sept 27, 6pm, at the Cedar building at Kwantlen 12666 72nd Avenue, Surrey, BC. Come on out and hear  about the suburban Island Telly Savalas owned in the 80s, what it's like to behold the vistas of your hometown from the window of a commuter train, and what the teen moms at the Valley Fair Mall have been up to all these years. See you!
