The review I wrote of Vancouver poet Mari-Lou Rowley’s last two poetry collections for The Danforth Review. The updated web page for Open Letter: A Canadian Journal of Writing and Theory. The review I wrote of Di Brandt’s Now You Care, Suzanne Zelazo’s Parlance & nathalie stephens’ Paper City (all Coach House Books) for The Antigonish Review. Some of the photos Max Middle took for the fall 2004 edition of the Ottawa International Writers Festival here. My friend Tom Fowler takes over the artwork of DC’s monthly Green Arrow title here. Robert Kroetsch has a great new poetry collection here. The piece I wrote on John Newlove’s last poem here. The return of William Hawkins, Ottawa’s most dangerous poet. A neat piece by Louis Cabri on hole magazine that he and Rob Manery used to run in Ottawa. Some poems by Jon Paul Fiorentino + others. Some poems by Rachel Zucker. Poems and listings of Ottawa literary events. My Ploughshares author page. Paste magazine, that has amazing compilation cds of new music with every issue. Two older reviews, one of Gerry Shikatani’s First Book, 3 Gardens of Andalucia (The Capilano Review) and Jacqueline Turner’s Careful (ECW Press). Some very odd things involving The Prize Budget for Boys. I recently discovered the work of Ottawa artist Christopher Griffin, that I quite like. I’m working to edit an issue of Australia’s Jacket magazine on George Bowering, but it isn’t finished yet. Have you heard who replaced him as Canada’s second Parlimentary Poet Laureate? Michael Winter’s blog. Mark Truscott’s blog. Ron Silliman’s blog. Some funny cartoons. Happy Decemberwe’en, everybody.
