Very happy to have poems included in two stellar anthologies this fall. The first is The Broadview Introduction to Literature: Poetry, edited by Lisa Chalykoff, Neta Gordon, and Paul Lumsden. If you scroll down through Shakespeare, Chaucer, Blake, Dickinson, and cummings, you'll find lil ol me at the end.
The second anthology is the first title of Chaudiere Books' re-launch, Ground Rules: the best of the second decade of above/ground press 2003-2013, edited by rob mclennan. Ground Rules includes poems by Artie Gold, Mark Cochrane, Suzanne Zelazo, derek beaulieu, Stephanie Bolster, Amanda Earl, Nathanaël, Lisa Samuels, Rachel Zolf, Sharon Harris, D. G. Jones, Julia Williams, Eric Folsom, Gregory Betts, Natalie Simpson, Monty Reid, William Hawkins, Emily Carr, Cameron Anstee, Helen Hajnoczky, Marilyn Irwin, Stephen Brockwell, Robert Kroetsch and rob mclennan.
I'm thrilled to help launch Ground Rules along with poets Marilyn Irwin and Stephen Brockwell in Ottawa on December 7 at 5 p.m. rob will host the event, which is co-sponsored by the Ottawa International Writers Festival and The Plan 99 Series at The Manx Pub.
