Globe and Mail Books columnist Judith Fitzgerald listed her top ten poetry collections of 2011, and among the books was Jenny Sampirisi's debut poetry book, Croak, a frog-and-girl opera of Beckettian proportions. It shared the honour with such titles as Ken Babstock's Methodist Hatchet, Sue Goyette's Outskirts and Phil Hall's Killdeer.
September 30th, 2014 marks the 70th birthday of bpNichol, born Barrie Phillip Nichol in Vancouver, British Columbia. His writing is engaged with what he called ‘borderblur’: in his lifetime he wrote (somewhere between) poetry, novels, short fiction, children’s books, musical scores, comic book art, collage/assemblage, and computer texts.
