" Mechanical poetry journal" in Toronto vends little broadsides for a toonie

Toronto Poetry Vendors have a launch of their latest (spring 2011 -- it's only a little late) issue at one of the newest installations of their poetry vending machines at Shopgirls gallery boutique in Parkdale,  June 30 at 7 p.m. 
TPV will also be at Clinton’s Tavern (693 Bloor St. W, near Christie Station) on July 9 for the Meet the Presses chapbook market with their portable, travelling machine, lovingly known as Snacks, stocked with the new issue (and possibly some back issues).
Toronto Poetry Vendors is a mechanical poetry journal which uses refurbished gum vending machines to vend twice-yearly issues consisting of 10 single, hand-folded broadsides by 10 Toronto-based poets, purchasable from the machines for a toonie.It is the creation of poets Elisabeth de Mariaffi and Carey Toane.
