In February of 2013 poet Dane Swan came up with what he thought was a novel idea for a poetry anthology: Invite poets strictly through his personal social media network of friends, and colleagues. Expecting maybe 4 or 5 responses he was floored to receive over 20. Expecting to compile and edit 30 pages of poetry he was delighted to put together a collection with 3 times that amount of content.
Dane Swan is an author and editor from Bermuda now residing in Toronto, Canada. His first collection of poetry, Bending the Continuum (Guernica Editions) was a midsummer read recommendation by Open Book Ontario. He has also was short-listed for the Monica Ladell Award in 2013. His second collection, A Mingus Lullaby is slated for a 2015 launch with Guernica.
