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!
Hello, and happy new year! I have two events coming up that I wanted to let you know about.
Next weekend, January 26-27-28, I’ll have an audio installation and open studio in the Art Break Hotel Exhibition at the Westminster Hotel in Dawson City, Yukon. I’m so excited to be a part of this show featuring 9 different artists who have completed work in the studio spaces of the hotel. The show is in conjunction with the (s)hiver Winter Arts Festival. Pop by and visit my studio, hear a recording of a few of my poems, say hello (I’ll be hanging around!)
The following week, on January 31st, I’ll be reading at the launch of the print edition of The Northern Review. The launch will take place at Yukon College in Whitehorse, Yukon, at the college bistro from 5 to 7.
Thanks for all your support!
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!
