I got to talk about what home means to me with the kind folks of Synaesthesia Magazine. Read the short blog piece here, if you like!  I definitely mention snow. Synaesthesia Magazine is a fantastic, beautifully-curated online journal based out of the UK. I’ve been lucky enough to work with them a couple of times, withContinue reading “Talking about home with Synaesthesia Magazine”

Glamato Interview

I was recently back in Vancouver for two weeks to run some teacher training workshops for BASA (the beloved speech arts school where I used to teach and for which I still design curriculum), and while I was back in my old neighbourhood I ate a lot of ice cream, dipped my toes in theContinue reading “Glamato Interview”

My poem “Nesting” is now published in the June issue of Bird’s Thumb, a delightfully quirky journal that showcases emerging writers.

New poem published in Word and Colour, May 2017

I’m thrilled to collaborate with Word and Colour again (my poem “Tinaja” appeared in the journal in February). My new poem “Natural Behaviours” is now up on the site, in response to visual art by Nick Liefhebber. I feel very lucky to be a contributor to Word and Colour.

New poetry in Gingerbread House Literary Magazine

My piece “Poem for a Protective Brother” is available in issue 24 of Gingerbread House Literary Magazine. I’m particularly pleased that this poem–based on the “Hansel and Gretel” fairy tale–made it into this magazine.

New work in new Spring 2017 issue of Grain Magazine

I’ve got two new poems in the newest issue of Grain: “Folk Tale Type 425C” and “On Learning a Girlfriend Started Cutting Again.” In very different ways, both poems explore the way that love, even good love, can fail to meet our expectations of “happily ever after.” Both of these poems happen to be particularly dearContinue reading “New work in new Spring 2017 issue of Grain Magazine”

Poetry forthcoming in Room Magazine

I’m super pleased that I have three poems appearing in the spring issue (40.2) of Room Magazine, edited by Meghan Bell.  “Dust,” “Love and Nintendo,” and “Creatures” explore the after-effects of sexual violence, and I so appreciate that they found a first home in such an awesome feminist magazine. There are lots of other fine writers featuredContinue reading “Poetry forthcoming in Room Magazine”
