Comfort of Malice engages with the process of documenting in the evening fields of Bamburgh Park attuned to the sounds of fairgrounds, transmission towers and other curiosities of an environment in migration. Accompanied by JC Bouchard’s photography is a multi-modal experience of the beautiful in conflict with the gritty, a notation against landscape.
Stanford Cheung is a poet and musician from Toronto. His debut collection of poems Structures from the Still (Akinoga 2018), was described by Marc di Saverio as “having a lyrical clarity and sage-like terseness that would make the Imagist Erza Pound himself, take full notice of this young and fully arrived poet.” Among his chapbooks authored include Any Seam or Needlework (Operating System, 2016), Kite Extension (words(on)pages) and We Could Be Anything (Crevasse Books, 2019). A Pushcart Prize nominee, Stanford’s work appears in anthologies and magazines such as Nomadic Journal, Tokyo Poetry Journal, Prompt Iowa, and the Asian Canadian Writers Workshop
