Best Canadian Poetry 2011

I know I don't normally talk about writing here, but I'm super excited to announce that one of my poems has been published in the 2011 collection of The Best Canadian poetry in English:



Every year, a special guest editor for the anthology goes through the literary journals that published poetry that year and choose 50 poems to be collected into the work. I'm very honoured! I know I don't talk about writing poetry much, but it's something I've always done. It's gratifying to be included in this year's anthology.

I cannot believe how modest you are! Having friends who are poets and writers and working at a college where creative writing is a significant presence, I know how difficult it is to get one's writing recognized, let alone published and included in a "Best of ..." I look forward to reading your poem!
