scrappy visuals by laurie macfayden


‘kissing keeps us afloat’ is the title of one of my poems.

‘kissing keeps us afloat’ is now also, officially, the title of my next poetry book, due for release next september as part of Quartet 2014, the annual four-pack from calgary publisher frontenac house.

and ‘kissing keeps us afloat’ is the name of this blog … which is all about the visual.

it’s meant to be long on images and short on text.
low-maintenance; minimalist. just pictures. all either photographed by me or painted by me.

that’s about all you need to know.

(to read the poem you will have to wait for the book … but i can tell you it involves water, and a stolen canoe, and kissing. lots of kissing.)

  1. Hey Laurie,

    Have you considered using Tumblr for this concept? I tried to start one myself, have no time to maintain it at the moment. Love your pics.
