National Magazine Award for Floating

Back in the summer of 2018, I shot a series of portraits with lovely photographer Grant Harder to accompany my short fiction piece Tremors, which appeared in Maisonneuve that September. Grant was a gem, I floated into the ocean at Jericho Beach, we caught the light, it was a hoot.

In a fun twist, Grant’s images recently won Gold in the portrait photography category at the National Magazine Awards! It’s as close as I’ve been to date to the NMAs, and I’m pleased as punch for Grant. Always a treat to see an artist at work up close. Ocean swims any time, Grant!

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.

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.
