What’s old is new again

January 5, 2016

The rumours are true: we’re dusting off our shoulders and readying our book-assembly skills to prep some new titles for spring 2016. Keep your eyes on this space (and likely this space, and this one, and this one) for updates.

Come and meet our press

October 26, 2012

We’ll be shilling our wares at the latest installation of the Meet the Presses Indie Lit Market on November 17, 2012. There’s nothing hot off the press at the moment, but our table will be full of plenty of oldies and goodies, including still-newish titles by Matthew Tierney and Julie Cameron Grey!

Dozens of other fabulous presses are participating, and Meet the Presses is set to announce the 2012 winner of the bpNichol Chapbook Award during the market. It’s two events in one!

Come and say hi between noon and 4:30 at the Tranzac, 292 Brunswick Street in Toronto.

A flea in your ear

July 5, 2012

We’ll be taking part in the second-ever Junction Flea this coming Sunday, July 8. TERU and our mechanical compatriots, Toronto Poetry Vendors, will be setting up shop from 9-4, rain or shine. Come and wander by Dundas and Keele and drop some change on poems, chapbooks (including newish titles by Matthew Tierney and Julie Cameron Grey) and broadsides galore – and check out all the other amazing vendors. It’d be swell to see you!

rob mclennan talks TERU (and four other amazing Canadian small/micro presses, including Apt. 9, AngelHousePress, Nomados and Greenboathouse) with the Australia-based Cordite Poetry Review. Thanks, rob!

TERU at Boneshaker

March 15, 2012

UPDATE: Due to the strike by the Toronto Public Library Workers’ Union, this reading has been cancelled.

The lovely Boneshaker reading series is playing host to two TERU authors: Julie Cameron Gray (Coordinating Geometry) and Matthew Tierney (Clock Radio Poems). Come on out and listen to some brand-spanking-new poetry!

“There is an endearing sense of intimacy and honesty in the best of Lea’s work, without any sense of empty trendiness.” View the original over at The Puritan, or click on the thumbnail to read on here!


And rob mclennan blogs about Julie Cameron Gray’s Coordinating Geometry over here – “It’s as though her poems are still working to discover a balance between ease and seriousness, working still to hold back a formal sense from tripping her up. “

And, we’re back.

November 2, 2011

It’s been a long hiatus for us over here at TERU… turns out getting married takes up WAY more of your time than you’d think, even when the wedding is simply and lovely. But now that we’re all done celebrating our nuptials, we’re ready to celebrate the release of our two fabulous new chapbooks: Julie Cameron Gray’s Coordinating Geometry and Nick Lea’s Actual Girl! And of course all of our older, but not any less fabulous, chapbooks and broadsides will be available for your purchasing pleasure, too.

Both books will be available at the Ottawa Small Press Fair this Saturday (12-5) at the Jack Purcell Community Centre (320 Jack Purcell Lane). Nick’s also reading at the Carleton Tavern the night before, if you prefer your poetry out loud.

And to tide you over until then, we’ll be on the Ottawa airwaves today, just in time for rush hour! Tune in to Click here today (Wednesday Nov. 2) at 5 pm, on CHUO-FM89, for an interview with yours truly.

We’ll be trotting out a lone new(ish) title for the Meet the Presses Screaming Chapbook Market on Saturday, July 9 – Stowaway by the lovely Carey Toane. Here’s the details:

Meet the Presses Screaming Chapbook Market
Saturday, July 9, noon till 5 pm
Clinton’s Tavern, 693 Bloor West

Presented by the Meet the Presses Collective

Scream Unfestival event

We’ve woken early from our winter slumber to bring you, courtesy of the lovely Sachiko Murakami, a brand new broadside, Another Spring: a renga in twenty-seven parts for Japan.

Featuring a collaborative poem penned by a range of fabulously talented poets, each broadside sells for only $10, with all proceeds going to Second Harvest Japan.

We’re super pleased and honoured to have been asked to take part and donate to such a worthy cause – and to that end, we’re asking you to help us sell out our first print run! A framed broadside would make a thoughtful Mother’s Day gift…

DP gets some… love?

December 10, 2010

Head on over to rob mclennan’s blog for a glimpse into Dinosaur Porn, the anthology we put out in 2009 with the equally fabulous Ferno House. DP’s been an international bestseller (it was a hit at the Brooklyn Book Festival) and there are still a few copies availble… drop us a line if you want to get your mitts on a copy.
