published by Stewed Rhubarb & Invisible Agent, 2014
This chapbook from Stewed Rhubarb press comes with a free digital album from Invisible Agent records. When combined you can re-create the ViewMaster experience at home.
While the live performance cannot be replicated we hope the combination of audio and images along side the physical book will allow you to sample the unique live show in the comfort of your own home.
When you purchase the book or e-book you’ll receive all four poems in text & audio format with Dan Gorman’s original sonic compositions plus the unique visuals from the theatrical performance.
”ViewMaster needs to be read as well as listened to…these poems come to life with Van Winkle’s rhythmic readings and Gorman’s ambient sound work. Emotive and sonic landscapes …. meditative and haunting’

Tomorrow, We Will Live Here
by Ryan Van Winkle
published by Salt, 2010
My first collection, ‘Tomorrow, We Will Live Here”, was released by Salt Publications in November 2010 after winning the 2009 Crashaw prize. The book is a collection of poems centred around people in uncomfortable situations — often of their own making. Or, as it says on the back of the book:
‘Plain spoken narrators as diverse as the America they inhabit – a pastor’s son, the lonely night nurse and fat boy – are all ill at ease. Through road kill, September 11th and death row characters address their own bitter faults with noir-like melancholy, seeking redemption and absolution. What you will find here is the grist of life – death, love, sex, departure – honed by a poet focused on the gravity, fear and humour of living.’
“Here is a new and authentic voice with a punch in the language.” — Penelope Shuttle
