I had the most fantastic time last night at the Poetry NOW event at Harbourfront Centre. All of the other poets were new to me, so it was a real treat to hear 19 very diverse and powerful voices. Luckily for me, the reading order was alphabetical, so I was fourth in line and after my five minutes could relax and listen to every one else. And here’s the very best part of it all. This morning I found out that Sandra Ridley won the competition–and John B Lee and I have also been invited to read at this year’s International Festival of Authors! It’s a dream come true.

Here’s the official press release:
