Praise for I NEED SPACE:


Eryk Wenziak’s I NEED SPACE loosens letters from the grip of meaning, creating shimmering stained glass through which we see the alphabet anew. Each poem re-sets the panes, letting light shine through the spaces and silences. These beautiful fragments are sharpened shards, each posing a seductive point at our staring eye. — derek beaulieu, Calgary poet laureate 2014-2016; author of The Unbearable Contact with Poets and Kern.

It has always been a pleasure to see Eryk's commentary on the history of the typewriter poem. He brings to it a contemporary contemplation. -- pete spence

In three distinct bodies of work Eryk Wenziak beautifully explores 'the space on the page'. Get the book. See for yourself! Erica Baum, author of Dog Ear.
