Poetry Update #13

I'm just back from the World Fantasy Convention in Calgary, Alberta. I wrangled some poets together and we had an open mic reading on the Thursday night at 10pm.

The poets who read were:

  • Joe Haldeman
  • David Lunde
  • Colleen Anderson
  • Rhea Rose
  • Eileen Kernaghan
  • Rhonda Parrish
  • Carolyn Clink

I worked on a poem on the return flight. It's for an assignment my brother has given me. I'm hoping to workshop it at the next meeting of the AST on November 9.

In related news, our glorious AST leader, Al Moritz, is nominated for a Governor General's Award for his poetry collection The Sentinel. It's a wonderful collection, and I'm rooting for him!
