Share |

The 31st volume of the poetry annual New American Writing has recently been released. This edition includes a section devoted to Canadian poetry, which was edited by rob mclennan to showcase work by ten Canadian poets.

Describing his editing process for this exciting new release, rob explains: "When soliciting for this small section of New Canadian Writing, I attempted a cross-section of some of the writers I've been keeping my eye on, the ones from various corners of the country that excite me. They range from the well-established to the other end of emerging; they range from the experimental to the more lyric narrative. The differences between our two countries are small, stark, obvious, nebulous and often impossible to articulate. There is no single difference. We look and sound like you, but after a while, subtle difference come up, that you hadn't quite noticed before."

The writers included in the issue are Rob Budde, Stephen Cain, Margaret Christakos, Trisia Eddy, Jon Paul Fiorentino, Phil Hall, Marilyn Irwin, Meredith Quartermain, Nicole Markotic and Andy Weaver.
