Marilyn Irwin features at In/Words Magazine Shivers: A Showcase

above/ground press author Marilyn Irwin features at the second official In/Words Showcase, hosted by In/Words Magazine [see the facebook invitation here]. Irwin features as part of a group of "new and established artists to demonstrate the wide range of talent in the Canadian literary scene" including Ali Alikhani, Kaleb Hikele, Jane Silcott and Kaleigh Watts.

Irwin is the author of three poetry chapbooks, two of which have been produced by above/ground press: for when you pick daisies (2010) and flicker (2012). Her work also features in the new anthology Ground Rules: the best of the second decade of above/ground press, 2003-2013 (Chaudiere Books, 2013).

The show, which will kick off at 7 pm on January 10, 2014 at Pressed Café on Gladstone, will showcase art ranging from indie-folk jams to heartfelt memoirs. Tickets can be purchased at the door for $10. Students with a valid student ID card can get discounted entry for $7. Proceeds will benefit the artists performing.
