Find the time, if you can, to check this out too – two poets published this fall by Inanna Publications. Myna Wallin‘s Anatomy of an Injury and Heidi Greco‘s Practical Anxiety are both great collections. Hope you enjoy our chats.
Governor General's Award for Fiction
Excited to announce that I’ve been nominated in the Writing category for a City of Hamilton Arts Award, along with my emerging artist nominee Ben Robinson (who was my guest on E63). That would be exciting in and of itself, but…okay…
I was nominated last year along with something like eight other writers. I lost to Bernadette Rule, which, yes, damn straight that’s as it should have been! I guess that all of the city’s authors are feeling exhausted though, because this year I’m the only nominee. Which means, so long as I qualify…I win? Yay me?
I certainly win – as do you – with this week’s show (ugh that was an awful segue). First, we have a quick book recommendation from next week’s guest Michael Redhill. After that, our feature interview is with Kathleen Winter, whose Lost in September was short-listed for the Governor General’s Award for Fiction. She’ll be at GritLit on April 14, so come out! In the meantime, hope you enjoy our conversation.
