File Under Self-Fellation

Flipping through the finally finished 33rd issue of fS to find an interview between angela rawlings and Jon Paul Fiorentino, I spot angela's question to Jon: "what's the best poetry scene in canada?" and Jon's answer: "Calgary!" (I may have added that exclamation point, I don't have the issue in front of me). The fuzzy feelings we give Jon can be seen in the upcoming anthology Post-Prairie he put together with Bobby Kroetsch and the fine folks at Talonbooks. Look at the contributor list that Jon's posted on his blog. 9 writers out of 25 from (or recently departed)Calgary. No offence to the cities the other writers are from, but we rule. Awesome!
