I am proud to announce that my first 
book-length poetry collection, 
will be published by 
Turnstone Press 
in September this year! 
This book has been fifteen years in the making, so I'm pretty excited about it! 
Poems in the collection have already been published in great literary magazines and journals, such as Vallum, The Vestal Review,  Existere, Prairie Fire,  Jones Av., Carousel,  lichen, The Harpweaver,  Zygote, and many others.
 One of the poems in the collection is currently on the short list for the 2013 Winston Collins/Descant Poetry Prize, and others have won the 1997 Cranberry Tree Press Poetry Chapbook Competition, the 2004 Toronto Poetry Competition, the Scarborough Arts Council's Poetry Competition, the New Century Writer Awards, etc.
