Great Canadian Literary Hunt, FTW

Late last week one of my poems, Evel Knievel Negotiates the Fountain at Caesar’s Palace, was named the winning entry in the poetry category of This Magazine‘s Great Canadian Literary Hunt. Needless to say I’m thrilled, and in good company with Jason Mathis and Medeine Tribinevicius, who finished second and third, respectively.

Check out the piece online or in the latest issue of This.
