Welcome, and thank you for visiting my website.

I'm excited and grateful to announce an interview about a wonderful honour I recently received from the University of Saskatchewan for my current poetry project, Contours. I was awarded the 2019-2020 Dick and Mary Edney Masters Scholarship for International Understanding through the Humanities and Fine Arts!  Thanks to the Master Trust Committee and the University of Saskatchewan College of Arts and Science, and many thanks to family and friends, personal and professional, for all your support.  

Here is a link to the USask MFA in Writing News interview that tells how this came about and where the award is taking me.

I had the good fortune last summer of writing the draft of Contours during a six-month mentorship with Saskatchewan writer, Karen Solie, recipient of the 2010 Griffin Prize in Poetry for her collection, Pigeon.

Stay tuned for updates.
