Geoffrey H. Goodwin is a sober and decent person, but he’s terrified of reality. Some people go “EeEeEek!” when they see a rodent or a tarantula –and Geoffrey sometimes does that too — but he’s most often left gasping by things that occur in the “real world.” (This is not to say that both rodents and tarantulas are not sometimes considered “real,” but this rapidly devolves into an epic ramble involving semantics, mousetraps and segmented legs.) So, most of all, Geoffrey H. Goodwin performs speculative fiction, strange off-kilter rants that attempt to make the strange, strange world make sense, sense, sense.

Liisa Ladouceur writes poems and reads signs. She was born with one i in Penetanguishene, Ontario a small town famous for its asylum and curlers. She got out with her sanity and her hair crimper and landed in Toronto, where she works as a rock critic/pop culture pundit for papers (eye weekly) and radio (CBC). Recently, her obsession with signs has resulted in a series of poems composed entirely from words photographed in public spaces. She will read these, with accompanying photos, along with new Sign Language poems created in each city of the tour, performed fresh nightly, nicely.
