Sacha Archer lives in Ontario, Canada with his wife and two daughters. He is the editor of Simulacrum Press. Archer’s latest chapbooks are Lines of Sight (nOIR:Z, 2020) and Houses (no press, 2020). Forthcoming chapbooks include Models (Simulacrum Press) and Framing Poems (Timglaset). His concrete poetry has been exhibited in the USA, Italy, and Canada. Find him on Facebook and Instagram @sachaarcher.
We have an impromptu conversation about Sacha’s background, his work, and his publishing activities with Simulacrum. I pull random publications of his and Simulacrum’s from a box and we discuss them.
