I’m thrilled to announce my poem, The Prime Minister shook his son’s hand, will be appearing in Best Canadian Poetry in English 2015, sometime this fall. I’m also stupefied something so short (it’s a sentence long!) could have such an impact, but, hey, that’s poetry.
Particular props to the eds. of BCP for scouring the Internet for Can Lit, and to The Steel Chisel, who have now published three of my poems, including the similarly Harper-is-human-themed, How to Kiss the Prime Minister, and the listicle-inspired madness that is Curglaff. If you’re a Canadian poet, submit to little Canadian publications like the Steel Chisel – the grown-ups are paying attention. 😉
