Poetry is not a big part of my reading life, but that’s not to say it hasn’t been important – as evidenced in “An Intimate Examination of Sock Fluff”, a keynote I delivered at a conference a few years ago.
In 2015 Brick Books celebrates 40 years of publishing poetry in Canada with what promises to be a wonderful year-long conversation on their website.
In the first week alone, the conversation included articles about Margaret Avison presented by John B. Lee, James Reaney presented by his family, Anne-Marie Turza presented by Lorna Crozier, and Anne Hébert presented by André Vanasse.
Next week will feature an article by me. Check in at Brick Books – or my Twitter profile – to see which poet and poem I opted to feature. (If you’re a regular follower of my blog, my choice may not surprise you.)
