Stephen Morrissey shares reminiscences about Véhicule Art Inc., an experimental forum for the performance of new poetry, in the 1970s, in Montreal. The Véhicule Poets have maintained a resilient practice of autoethnography over the past four decades, documenting their involvement, but also formalizing their records in publications, such as, Vehicule Days: An Unorthodox History, and the Vehicule Poets website, and at events, like the commemorative reading hosted at McGill University on 26 April 2018. This commitment to memory and to sharing their story in different voices ease the road for researchers to piece together angles on literary history, narrative, and the archive.
