Welcome

I'm a poet and teacher in Prince George, BC. My first two books of poetry, "understories" and "This Isn't the Apocalypse We Hoped For" were published by Caitlin Press. My most recent book is called "Undiscovered Country", through Mother Tongue Publishing (Fall, 2018). I also have three chapbooks: "Deerness", "Four Neat Holes" and "The Picket Fence Diaries." My poems have been published in The Malahat Review, GRAIN, CV2, Event, subTerrain, and in various anthologies, including Rocksalt, 4 Poets, & The Best Canadian Poems, 2011.

Poetry Kitchen Party

The poetry kitchen party is a concept I borrowed from Canadian east coast musicians. Instead of reading to 10-15 people in a noisy coffee shop, why not in someone's home? I tried it out in Vancouver & Nanaimo, and everyone enjoyed the setup: poets could read and be listened to, listeners could ask questions and actively engage with the poems. So on May 31st, I tried it out in Prince George at Tanja & Andy's, my friend's place in Shelley. Taylor & I read and it was a wonderful evening.
