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 two chapbooks: "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.

Book Launch!

I had a lot of fun launching my book in Vancouver, with four readings in four days, but the icing on the cake was my Prince George launch at Theatre NorthWest. There was drumming by Clayton Gauthier, Spoken Word by K.Darcy Taylor, and a theatrical performance by Melissa Glover and her troupe.    My book was also featured at All Lit Up: Poetry in Motion

The Business of Art

I had a great time running a writing workshop for Studio 2880's Business of Art series. We talked about the craft of poetry and resources for getting published.

New Book!

I'm excited to announce that I'll have a new book of poetry coming out in just over a year with Mother Tongue Publishing. It's called Undiscovered Country and is all about the happy fate of our mortality.

In Translation

Sandro Pecchiari, a wonderful poet from Trieste, Italy, has translated some of my poems into Italian. Here's a new blog post with my poem, "The Shape You Make", from Understories.
