Just in time for the Easter weekend, my short story about the Eucharist is now published online with Synaesthesia Magazine! “Daily Bread” is from a collection of short stories about food and love that I have been working on the past couple years, and I am super excited that it’s been published in Synaesthesia Magazine‘s EAT issue. I am so impressed with the beautiful illustrations in this issue, and especially pleased with the image that artist Miranda Foxx created for my story. Check out the whole issue! It’ll make you hungry!
April also means that it’s National Poetry Month! And this year, the League of Canadian Poets are inspired by the theme of food! According to their website, they got the idea from Rachel Rose’s inaugural speech as Vancouver’s Poet Laureate: “Everyone has something to say about food, whether it is the activist challenging the cruelties of conventional farming, the exile remembering the waft of spices on lost streets, or the child writing about the sockeye salmon she buys at Granville Island. Food is personal, political, sensual, and powerful.”
I’m certainly going to try my hand at some food-themed poems this month! Are you?
