I have an article on my early poetic adventures in collaboration in the new Gig anthology, ANTIPHONIES: Essays on Women’s Experimental Poetries in Canada. Details from Nate Dorward, the publisher:
Antiphonies is a primer on some of the most exciting work in contemporary Canadian poetry. These essays deal with the period from the 1980s to the present, and discussa wide range of work, from books already acclaimed as modern classics–such as ErinMouré’s O Cidadán, Lisa Robertson’s Debbie: An Epic, and Karen Mac Cormack’s Implexures–to the equally remarkable work of Susan Clark, Catriona Strang, LissaWolsak, Christine Stewart, Deanna Ferguson, Lise Downe, Nancy Shaw, a.rawlings,Marie Annharte Baker and others. The essays are complemented by brief selections of poems, interviews and poetics statements. Contributors include Gerald Bruns, Miriam Nichols, Edward Byrne, John Hall, Susan Schultz, Caroline Bergvall, Chris Daniels, Peter Larkin, Peter O’Leary, and many others.
