Residency: Landfall Trust

September 29, 2017

This fall I was the Landfall Trust Writer in Residence at beautiful Kent Cottage in Brigus, NL. It’s a gorgeous unique spot that you should visit if you ever get the chance. The cottage is off-grid and perched out away from town on the edge of cliff overlooking the bay. If you peer closely, you can spot it in this photo I took from a nearby hill.

How a Poem Moves

May 15, 2017

Poet and professor Adam Sol’s How a Poem Moves project is looking at Diversion this week. It’s a very good close reading that really gets the book.

 Since I started working on this blog I’ve known that I wanted to write about George Murray’s Diversion, but I’ve had a problem because most of the poems are well over 30 lines long. For the sake of keeping my essays readably short, I’ve tended to stick with shorter pieces. And so finally I asked George’s permission to use just a section from one of the poems – you won’t get the full picture here, but I hope you can get a sense of how the poems move, and that it will encourage you to dive more deeply into this funny, inventive, often disturbing collection.

Publication: Contemporary Verse 2

October 18, 2016

I have an interview and new poems in CV2 this month, as well as a photo on the cover. The caption on the cover reads “Poetry, Politics, & Poor Choices.” Egad, what did I say to them? Will have to read it to remember.

I have a new poem at The Puritan in an issues guest edited by Sonnet L’Abbe and Kathryn Kuitenbrouwer. Classy joint, The Puritan. Hopefully I don’t bring down the property values.

News: Quick

August 8, 2016

Coming next spring from ECW Press: QUICK, new aphorisms. The image here shows the title in a different colour from the background, but only for online image purposes. On the printed book the title will be the same colour as the cover background and will be embossed instead. So on first glance, you’ll see only “APHORISMS   GEORGE MURRAY” and then picking it up will reveal the title. Neat!
