Robert Kroetsch shortlist

This week I was thrilled to find out that my poetry manuscript, The Things I Heard About You, is on the shortlist for the Robert Kroetsch award for innovative poetry, judged by Ken Babstock. There are four manuscripts on the shortlist and the winning book will be published by the Snare imprint of Invisible Publishing in Toronto. I’m an admirer of both Robert Kroetsch’s and Ken Babstock’s work — I love Kroetsch’s long poem Field Notes and am glad I saw him read years ago at UBC.

My congratulations to the other three nominees, Jennifer Zilm, Michael Chaulk and Jeremy Stewart.  You can read a little bit more about the award here.
