New Poem – Fog Bank Fox Trot

Thank you ArtAscent,  it is an honour to be included in your latest collection. This issue attempts to capture the fleeting idea of bliss in its many forms. My poem looks at how bliss can appear within the depths of a foggy night, when two strangers find comfort in a tender embrace.  Check out Fog Bank Fox Trot on page 66 for free: http://www.magcloud.com/browse/issue/1271537

Fire and Sky

I am honoured to announce that one of my poems has been included in the Fire and Sky Anthology. This collection of poems was put together by David C. Brydges to raise money for the Wood Buffalo Regional Library in Fort McMurray. The book contains a wide variety of poems that examine themes of loss and recovery, renewal and hope, adversity and triumph, and most importantly poems about the Fort McMurray fire and its aftermath.

Please join me and my fellow poets for the Calgary book launch of this title. The launch will be at the Contemporary Calgary Art Gallery on December 10th from 8-10pm. You will have the opportunity to hear readings from the book, including my poem A Spark of Hope, as well as hear a performance from violinist Moyo Williams.
