It’s a great honour to be the recipient of the 2014 ReLit Award for my short story collection, Auxiliary Skins. ReLit is hosted and respected by writers I admire, and driven by values I align myself with. Big thanks to Kenneth Harvey for organizing the award each year, and to Exile for taking a chance on me.
Mansfield Fall Launch Tour
‘Twas a great misfortune that I fell ill with pneumonia right as the Mansfield Fall Launch Tour got underway. I’m happy I could make it to four of the five reading events (one of those via Skype!) and that I had the opportunity to launch my new book, Carafola, alongside poets Laura Farina, Nelson Ball and Frank Davey. Thank you to Stuart Ross and Denis DeKlerk for their tireless work putting together the tour.
Interim Reading Series: Inaugural Event!
Thanks to Michael Casteels for inviting me to read at the first Interim Reading in Kingston! I read alongside some super-fine writers: Jason Heroux and Annie-Marie Turza, and got to see many people I love. (Photo credits: Allison Chisholm)
