News: Governor General’s Award Finalists

October 15, 2009

The finalists for the GGs (kind of like a Canadian version of the Pulitzer) in Poetry were announced this morning. I served as a juror for the process and am quite proud of the list. Of course there were many more I would like to have included, but I did what I could. Good luck to all the finalists. Results announced in November.


  • David W. McFadden, “Be Calm, Honey” (Mansfield Press)
  • Philip Kevin Paul, “Little Hunger” (Nightwood Editions)
  • Sina Queyras, “Expressway” (Coach House Books)
  • Carmine Starnino, “This Way Out” (Gaspereau Press)
  • David Zieroth, “The Fly in Autumn” (Harbour Publishing)
