Landscape has become increasingly important to me and to my writing over the last few years. It started when I wrote for Sarah Harmer’s I Love the Escarpment Tour and continued when I was asked to write poems about Lake Ontario by Lake Ontario Waterkeeper. So I was thrilled when Open Book Ontario – a new off shoot of Open Book Toronto asked me to chat with them about landscape. You can read the interview here.
While I was chatting with them they asked me about my first experiences writing in Kingston, about the community there – who’ve always been extremely generous to me – and about Bronwen Wallace – who had an enormous impact on me as a young writer. You can check that out in their field guide.
There’s more news in the offing, so stay tuned.
