Garden” from the Field Guide to the Lost Flower of Crete is featured by the League of Canadian Poets in their Poetry Pause program for National Poetry Month; this year’s theme is intimacy.

The Field Guide was reviewed in Arc Poetry Magazine by Margaryta Golovchenko: “Like the liaison in French or the tie symbol in sheet music, Schönmaier creates transitions with the help of images that carry over.”

The issue also contains a tribute to Diana Brebner along with colour plates of Mary Pratt’s art and lots more. You can join the spring launch of Arc 97 on Friday 29th April with John Barton, Dessa Bayrock, Anita Lahey, Sneha Madhavan-Reese and music by Ensemble Allure. If you’re unable to attend in person you can join via the livestream.

Friday 29th April is poem in your pocket day. Remember to share your favourite poems wildly and widely.
