In Print: Maisonneuve

I get to type some pretty cool and unexpected words today: I have a story in Maisonneuve.

My fiction child “Tremors” appears in the fall edition, Issue 69, accompanied by double-spread art photography, and I just couldn’t be more honoured.

There are so many shout-outs that need shouting, including incredible thanks to Maisonneuve’s editorial team of andrea bennett and Selena Ross. Credit also goes to Vancouver photographer and all-round mensch Grant Harder, who made wading out into the ocean at Jericho Beach seem like a great idea (and it totally was). I mean, this might be the closest I get to being a centrefold, y’all.

You can order your copy of Maisy here. I’ll be hoarding mine for the rest of time.

In Print: CV2 Vol. 40

It’s no longer Spring 2018, which mean I’ve been terribly remiss in celebrating the spring issue of Contemporary Verse 2, which was an all-poetry powerhouse. Vol. 40 Issue No. 4 featured my poem “Tipping” alongside thirty-two other “fired-up voices,” and you can still get your hands on this scrappy collection here. Many thanks to CV2 for including me.

In Review: Stray

I’ve had the privilege of reading some truly accomplished debut collections, and Allison LaSorda’s Stray is at the top of this list. I feel like LaSorda could teach a masterclass on line breaks, and follow it up with tips on how to skewer and cradle at the same time. Her work is so intentional. You can find my full review in Arc here, and if you need me, I’ll be over in my corner taking copious notes.

In Print: SubTerrain #78

The subTerrain Winter Issue is out, and in it is my poem Interlock! Copies are on newsstands now. I have no qualms recommending this issue to you especially because the cover features illustrations by good friend and writer extraordinaire andrea bennett. Aren't they great?
