Sydney Lea and John B. Lee, two poets brought together via/by/through their appearances on the pages of Numéro Cinq are going to fight it out (I guess) together in Ottawa June 19 at the American Embassy as THE DUELING POETS. Sydney Lea is the Poet Laureate of Vermont (not Vermonth as it is spelled on the U.S. Embassy website — http://canada.usembassy.gov/news-events/2012-news-and-events/june-2012/1-june-2012-embassy-to-present-dueling-poets.html — when I checked–maybe someone there was thinking vermouth?); John B. Lee is the Poet Laureate of Norfolk County (where I grew up), Ontario. Sydney is also a former faculty member & board member at Vermont College of Fine Arts.
