Northern Poetry Review

Alex Boyd was kind enough to interview me recently for Northern Poetry Review. Alex asks some great questions, and I appreciate his close reading of my book. Look out for his Best Canadian Essays (edited with Carmine Starnino) this fall.

Also of note on the Northern Poetry Review site is a review of Elizabeth Bachinsky’s Curio / God of Missed Connections by Alessandro Porco. Porco delves into what he calls Bachinsky’s “Janus-like poetic praxis”, something I greatly admire in her work.

Vagabond Trust

I’ll be reading tomorrow night (Tuesday, Oct. 27 at 8 pm) with a wonderful line-up of writers at the Vagabond Trust Reading Series. Don’t miss a chance to catch Shane Neilson launching his second book, Meniscus (Biblioasis, 2009), or the prose stylings of future MM contributor Matt Leslie. Details below:

Coming Soon

The latest Cactus Press chapbook, Matt Rader’s Customs, is officially at the printers. The poem involves the hanging of Louis Sam, a Sto:lo boy, in 1884. I’ll post details on how to get a copy in the coming weeks.

Harmonics

I’m geeked to be reading at the Toronto launch for Jesse Ferguson’s first collection of verse, Harmonics, on October 15th at the Cameron House. It’s a terrific debut, but don’t take it from me – Jesse’s been getting great reviews (1 / 2).

So come grab a beer and pick up a copy of Jesse’s new book.
