Happy World Poetry Day! I’ve revised and relaunched the poetry film As If.
I’m also looking forward to Poem in Your Pocket Day which is on April 29th this year. I’m delighted that one of my poems has been chosen by the League of Canadian Poets to be included in the booklet and audio collection. The poems will also be available as postcards. This year you can have a postcard sent out to a friend or family member (in Canada only). You pay what you can. To send a card all you have to do is fill out this League of Canadian Poets form.
The other poets included in this year’s program are: Dagne Forrest, Natalie Lim, Pamela Porter, Laurie Koensgen, Catherine Graham, Marion Lougheed, Stephen Bett, Laboni Islam, Margo Wheaton, Louisa Howerow, Moni Brar and Amlanjyoti Goswami. I’m honoured to be in such good company.
Plus here is a poem excerpt as a mini-preview from Field Guide to the Lost Flower of Crete (MQUP) which is forthcoming in June.
