CBC Poetry Prize Longlist

Hello Internet, it’s Friday, October 30th, and yesterday was a pretty big day.

I did Original on the mainstage at the Arts & Culture Centre, which was just… wow. What a big stage for that little show – and yet, it felt like it fit. And to work in front of a live audience again… there’s nothing quite like that.

If you missed it and are interested, we did a live recording of the performance, and Persistence will be releasing it for a virtual audience this winter.

But also, yesterday was the announcement of the 2020 CBC Poetry Prize longlist… and I’m on it. It’s been a good fall for me, poetry-wise – one of my pieces was an honourable mention in the Riddle Fence Poetry Contest as well, and published in issue 37.

And! Since I just submitted the latest draft of the manuscript, I should say that my book is available for pre-order, and it’ll be out in March 2021.
