Toronto Star interviews Jeramy Dodds
The Toronto Star's Vit Wagner talks to Jeramy Dodds about his Griffin Poetry Prize nomination on the eve of the shortlist readings, which are given on June 2nd, 2009 at a sold-out MacMillan theatre in Toronto to a crowd of 850.
From the interview:
'I understand that this is a huge honour for a first book,' says Dodds, chatting earlier this week in a Toronto coffee shop. 'It's a little overwhelming.'
'I love readings,' continues the 34-year-old, who grew up in Orono Township, near Peterborough. 'But needless to say, I'm a little nervous about how many people will be in attendance. For some, it might be the only poetry reading they may go to all year.'
