Now where I come in.
For my blog, official in every degree, I wanted to name it something that would truly describe myself and what I am trying to convey here. As it turns out there is nothing that can really describe a 20-something poet and knitter who enjoys weird films and becomes nostalgic at the mention of any punk band from before the aughts. No, that description would probably be a little lame and could most certainly not be tied up in a neat three word title. Thus, Pen Pencil Poison.
I am a literary nerd. Once I found out that Vancouver had an amazing lit scene I've pretty much been to any event that will have me and I've rubbed shoulders with some of the coolest authors this city has to offer. That being said, as much as I love contemporary literature, I just can't get over the classics. This brings me back to Oscar Wilde and his novel The Portrait of Dorian Gray
