Publication: Lemon Hound

March 1, 2014

Three new poems excerpted from a series I’m working on for publication in the fall of 2015 (with ECW again) are up at Lemon Hound. Pleased because  I feel LH is one of the most significant venues for poetry and poetry criticism in North America, so it’s nice to be up there with all the cool kids.

January 24, 2014

My first book for children, Wow Wow and Haw Haw, gets a nice mention in the spring preview at the Canadian industry paper Quill & Quire. Following a previous mention in Publisher’s Weekly, I hope this means all the librarians now know it’s going to be a thing this spring!

Books: Wow Wow and Haw Haw

December 6, 2013

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.
