i was interviewed in the Kenyon Review, wrote a 'notes from the field' in periodicities, and Michael Edwards reviews some of my poems

It has been a while since I've done a round-up, hasn't it? Well, to begin, then: Ruben Quesada was good enough to allow me to answer some interview questions recently over at the Kenyon Review, which was pretty cool (alongside American poet Travis Chi Wing Lau), which you can totally see here. I did a "Notes from the Field" for periodicities: a journal of poetry and poetics, writing some notes on Ottawa poetry and publishing from our singular vantage point of Alta Vista Drive. Vancouver poet and editor Michael Edwards wrote up some notes on three poems of mine from where is the river (you can see the poems themselves here), and he even did a write-up on 2020, including when Christine and I read out that way back in February--including his regret that he didn't come out to lunch! If you read my report on the event right after it happened, you can completely see why, right? Oh, Michael Edwards. Hmmmm. Was there anything else?
