When word started spreading about Lily Pepper’s upcoming YOW! A Zine About Ottawa, I felt like handpicking a chapbook-sized manuscript of poems for her. Then I restrained myself and sent two, one of which – “Monday night at Georgetown Pub” – will be included in the inaugural issue. I'm happy to be involved and grateful the zine gave me a push, as "Monday night at Georgetown Pub" had been in an unfinished state since 2011!
Until YOW! launches, bide your time with the rather impressive range of attention (both grassroots and media-wise) that Lily has been garnering: her call for submissions in Metro News, another in the always trusty Apt 613 and, finally, her interview on CBC Radio.
