…in case you’ve not heard, Interruptions in Glass has been shortlisted for two Saskatchewan Book Awards, the Award for Poetryand the Regina Book Award. And, as if being shortlisted with two GG nominated fiction writers such as Sandra Birdsell and Dianne Warren isn’t enough, I’m in amongst some seasoned veterans of poetry such as Dave Margoshes and Don Kerr. For me the greatest satisfaction is just being shortlisted.
And the SBA will be featuring poems by the shortlisted poetry books, so keep your eyes on the SBA facebook page. Update: In order to read the poems, you must join the SBA FB group!!
And here’s a link to a smallish review; it is American (you must scroll to the end of the poetry reviews to see it), and short, but positive, which is never a bad thing!!
And one question for you the general masses that may or may not be reading me any more. Has any contemporary Canadian female poet ever been labelled as an “upstart?”
Thanks A! (Just found your comment in the spam.)
Upstart? Don’t hear that word too often in relation to writers.
I agree, not a common term, but I did recently read it in relation to a few male writers (poets) and wondered if women were ever viewed in the same light by anyone.
