Pith & Wry: Canadian Poetry will be published in October/November 2010. My poem, “Passover”, will be the final piece in the book, “an important position, not usually filled by a novice poet, but chosen in this case because of the subtle but effective use […] made of form” (personal email from the editor, Susan McMaster).
Your Scrivener Press will print a first edition of between 500 and 750 copies, and actively promote book tours and readings across Canada in fall 2010.
