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!
I’m so honoured to have two poems in The Northern Review, a journal published out of Yukon College in Whitehorse. You can read the poems online at The Northern Review today, along with so many other talented Yukon and northern-inspired writers, and hopefully in print very soon.
Hello, friends! My weekly posts are becoming less weekly and more sporadic. This is partly because I’m feeling I have less to say here, and partly because I’m feeling like when I do have writing time, I want to be completely focused on writing new poems, revising old poems, and sending them out to journals. To that end, I’ve decided that I’ll only update here as a way to give you writing news: when I’ve got a new poem being published or if I’m going to be reading in public somewhere.
And on that note, I’m so pleased to be in the Fall issue of The Maynard! You can read my poem, Birdwatching, here. There’s also a recording of me reading it; it’s my first experience doing that. I hope you enjoy it!
