So… February’s coming up. And you know what that means…
Time for some filthy Valentines… and some sweet ones, too.

Luscious, tender words by Dana Stan.
About the poet: Dana Stan is still working on her second novel and she’s really got to finish it. Soon.
What? You want more? This year, I want you to buy the book, because we’re using it to fundraise for Camp fYreFly. But ok. Here’s a tiny taste of Dana’s beautiful poem:
Dana also had a piece in last year’s inaugural Screw Chocolate project. Did you miss it? Here you go, kitten. Don’t say I never do anything for you:

Screw Chocolate, Volumes 1 & 2!
Roses, cupid’s arrows, chocolate—chocolate? Screw chocolate! Queer up Valentine’s Day instead with these hilarious, heartbreaking (yes, sometimes deliciously filthy) valentines by Calgary authors who have a fresh, occasionally revolutionary (always, insightful) take on love.
Featuring fiction (or is it?), poetry, and non-fiction (or is it?) from Beatrice Aucoin, Dallas Barnes, L. Sara Bysterveld, Lotis Cervantes, M. Jane Colette/Marzena Czarnecka, Callan Field, Elisa Kae, Tanysia Komers, H. P. Longstocking, Tet Millare, Brooke Nicholas, Alyssa Linn Palmer, Nola Sarina, Dana Stan, T, Mel Vee, Ann Zee, and PW Zellie, and photography from Jennifer Weihmann (Volume 1) and Leslie Pringle (Volume 2).
In February 2017, we launched Screw Chocolate as our first collaborative multi-author multi-media project, and it kind of kicked ass. This year, we are thrilled to bring you Screw Chocolate 2 AND Screw Chocolate, our original 2017 edition — for the first time in a holdable, huggable, kissable, bitable (grrrrr) version.
If you are in Calgary on February 12–COME TO OUR LAUNCH PARTY!
