journal + anthology publications

I'm indebted to the hard working editors and copyeditors of the journals and anthologies in which my work has appeared. Additional thanks to the Banff Centre for the Arts, the Canada Council for the Arts, the Toronto Arts Council, the Ontario Arts Council Writers' Works in Progress program, and OAC recommenders: BookThug, BRICK, Coach House Books, Cormorant Books, Descant, Guernica Editions, Mansfield Press, TSAR Publications, and Wolsak & Wynn for their support through the Writers' Reserve program.

+ Big thanks to the folks at The Puritan for the opportunity to guest-edit their lit blog, The Town Crier, this past spring. Essays and interviews from a fantastic crew of contributors can be accessed at: towncrier.puritan-magazine.ca [they are displayed in reverse order of publication, from the end of the month to the beginning].
