Original artwork from the book on display
Canadian Poetries is starting a new mini-interview series for poets and they asked me to kick it off. Here you go.
My first book for children, in collaboration with artist Michael Pittman, has been announced in both the Quill and Quire and Publisher’s Weekly. It’ll appear in Spring 2014 from Breakwater Books. It’s going to be a thing of beauty — hardcover with a nice dust jacket and full-colour paintings by Sobey Prize nominee Pittman. I had already owned three of Michael’s paintings, purely as a fan of his work, when his name came up as illustrator. I was so thrilled he said yes. We jived really well in the development of this book and hope you’ll all enjoy it.
