My latest book, In Fine Form, 2nd edition - A Contemporary Look at Canadian Form Poetry  (co-edited with Kate Braid), is now available from Caitlin Press 2016. 

In the decade since the publication of the first edition of In Fine Form, there has been a resurgence of Canadian poets writing in “form” – from ballads, ghazals and palindromes to sonnets, villanelles and more. The first edition was called “groundbreaking” and “a landmark text.” Since then this anthology has been widely used in classrooms and at large, by students, writers and readers. With 189 poems and almost 51 new poets, this 2nd edition continues to break new ground, exploring new forms not acknowledged in most other anthologies including prose poems, found poems and spoken word.
