I am thrilled to announce that my first full-length poetry collection, tentatively titled “The Pit”, is forthcoming from Nightwood Editions in 2021! These poems deal with addiction and community set in a small-town, sub-arctic dive bar. Stay tuned for more information!
I’m very excited to be heading to Vancouver in October for two great literary events! On October 5th, I’ll be reading at the Real Vancouver Writer’s Series at the Russian Hall, 600 Campbell Ave East at 7 pm. And on October 9th, I’ll be reading at the emerge launch. Emerge is an anthology of student work from the 2018 cohort of writers from Simon Fraser University’s The Writer’s Studio. Copies of the anthology will be for sale at the launch! Hope to see you there!
Happy National Poetry Month! I’ll be giving a short reading tonight, April 8th to open the City of Dawson Council Meeting.
This Saturday, April 13th at 7 pm, I am so excited to be launching the Best New Poets in Canada anthology at Well-Read Books in Whitehorse, Yukon. My dear friend Joanna Lilley will be hosting, and there will be readings from Whitehorse writers Becca MacCulloch and Katie Zdybel, and music from Susu Robin. I’ll be reading a selection of work from my anthology-mates Sarah Kabamba and Georgia Wilder as well as my own poems. I really hope to see you there!
I am so thrilled to announce that my chapbook manuscript, “Thick”, with poems about mothering young children, isolation and post-partum depression, is included in this wonderful anthology from Quattro Books. You can find it online here or request it from your favourite local bookstore or library! Stay tuned for launches planned in Whitehorse and Dawson City!
Hi friends! I’ll be showing some of my new Pit poems this weekend at the second annual Art Break Hotel Open Studio and Exhibition, at The Westminster Hotel in Dawson City. Come see my studio, read some poems, and grab a bookmark. I’ll have a few books for sale, too!
