Patricia Young. For anyone who has experienced the highs and lows of love and wants to know they are not alone. Patricia Young's new collection confirms her status as one of Canada's great and most versatile contemporary poets. In Amateurs at Love , she explores the dynamic, liminal space between lovers, taking precise aim at the silent climacteric moments of the heart: the interrogating, persuading, confiding, reflecting moments that help us feel and understand that distance. Her response is unexpected, unsettling and emotionally pungent. To the question of what is love, her interlocutor answers, I think it means a boxcar going off the rails, grain spilling down a gully, fermenting over summer, a bear gorging on that grain, passing out in a field, a bear that could wake any moment, hung-over and thirsty and ready to kill for a drop of water In forms ranging wildly from pangramic love songs to prose poems, Young guides her readers through the many layers of human relationship with unappeasable joy.
Maisie Williams. Age: 31. You will not be disappointed! I am greedy for sex, wild and unstoppable. My energy will drive you crazy. I will moan, squirm and make me want my body more and more. Dive with me in the sea of debauchery and lust. Be my bad boy and I will be your bad girl. I will squeeze you to the last drop, but even then I will hardly calm down. I will dress as you wish, I like stockings and heels.

Following the unexpected global response to my TenThingsNotToSayToAWriter hashtag yesterday, I found myself involved in an equally interesting debate about what constitutes being a writer, and who exactly should be allowed to refer to themselves as such. The massive response to my hashtag suggests that there are many, many writers out there. Not all of them are published; not all of them want to be published. Somebody even came to me and complained that I was encouraging amateur writers in delusions of grandeur. This got me thinking about what it means to be a writer, and more specifically, what it means to be an amateur writer, as opposed to a professional. This was what I concluded. If you write, then you are a writer.
Danielle Panabaker. Age: 23. Gorgeous girl brighten up your loneliness for today! My body will not leave anyone indifferent. Silk skin, sweet face, elastic chest and ass.
