Longlisted for the CBC Poetry Prize

Today, I finally got to publicly share this incredible news: my entry for the 2015 CBC Poetry Prize, a suite of poems entitled “Where the Old Road Begins,” has made the longlist! I worked hard on these poems, inspired by a mysterious photo album discovered one summer day in Trinity Bellwoods Park in downtown Toronto, full of iconic images of mountain peaks and BC wilderness, a landscape I had the privilege of glimpsing during my time living out west from 2009-2010. Regardless of whether or not I make the shortlist or even—dare I say it—win the CBC Poetry Prize, I am so honoured to be included in such a hugely talented group of poets.
