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.'
Happy April, Coach House friends! Some guy may have thought it cruel, but we're pretty sure that if he had known about National Poetry Month he'd have been into it — we sure are! In fact, to celebrate National Poetry Month, for the month of April we're discounting all of our backlist poetry titles by 30% (so everything but our three recently launched Spring 2014 poetry titles).
Poet Sina Queyras, whose new collection MxT launched this spring, discusses form, critical discourse, and the state of Canadian poetry with fellow poet Adam Sol in the April 2014 issue of Quill & Quire.
Coach House Books is putting the 'CH' in 'Kaffeeklatsch' this year. Starting in February, our coffee room will host a monthly Coach House Kaffeeklatsch! Not so much writers' workshops (there are already plenty of excellent writing workshops in Toronto) but talks and conversations with publishers and authors about the more practical aspects of being a writer and working in book publishing.
