new from above/ground press: flicker by Marilyn Irwin

Marilyn Irwin

i was a porcelain doll
steel, straw, firefly

by the front door

the door knob
echoes your fingerprints

i’m counting sheep:

published in Ottawa by above/ground press
August 2012
a/g subscribers receive a complimentary copy

Marilyn Irwin partook in two of Ottawa poet rob mclennan’s poetry workshops in 2010, and graduated from Algonquin College’s Creative Writing Certificate Program this Spring. Marilyn self-published her first chapbook for when you pick daisies (2010) which was immediately re-issued by above/ground press. Extrapolated fragments of her musings can be found in issues of Bywords, Bywords Quarterly Journal, ottawater and Peter F. Yacht Club.

This is Irwin’s second above/ground press title, after the collection for when you pick daisies (2010).

See reviews of her previous work here and here.
