dusie : the tuesday poem,

Over at the Swiss online journal Dusie, editor/publisher Susana Gardner is allowing me to curate a weekly poem on the dusie blog. On Tuesday, April 9, 2013, the series opened with “On Recovery,” a poem by American poet Elizabeth Robinson (currently the Hugo Fellow at the University of Montana). The Tuesdays that immediately followed included the poem “Cityscape,” by Kansas poet Megan Kaminski, “from Winter of Weak Welcome” by Toronto poet Marcus McCann and “ANGEL GOING POW” by American poet (and current Toronto resident) Hoa Nguyen.

The series aims to publish a mix of authors from the dusie kollektiv, as well as Canadian and international poets, ranging from emerging to the established. Over the next few weeks and months, watch for new work by dusies and non-dusies alike, including Stephen Collis, j/j hastain, David W. McFadden, Edward Smallfield, Erín Moure, Roland Prevost, Maria Damon, Rae Armantrout, Jenna Butler, Cameron Anstee, Sarah Rosenthal, Kathryn MacLeod, Camille Martin, Pattie McCarthy, Stephen Brockwell, Rosmarie Waldrop, Nicole Markotić and Deborah Poe.

A new poem will appear every Tuesday afternoon, Central European Summer Time, just after lunch (which is 8am in Central Canada terms).

I was fortunate enough to participate in a number of dusie projects, including the fifth dusie kollectiv, and guest-edited “Dusie 10: the Canadian issue.
