Poem of the Week: Trish Salah

What a vision is. Of course it is not all to do with pleasure, let alone the composition of your genitals, Fluids forming a confluence of energy and sleep, predator joy, and submissive heat. Of course there is no simple logic to a boy in a man's lap, a slave gazing with devoted eyes, or...
Flannery O'Connor reads A Good Man is Hard to Find

Flannery O’Connor reads A Good Man is Hard to Find

I wrote about this story, indirectly, a while back. Here's an excerpt: A new story by Alice Munro in the current New Yorker had the Hound up part of the night, and just when she had begun to think that Munro couldn't zing her anymore. The twist in plot took her completely by surprise. Cheeky,...

Thanks & So Long

Thanks & So Long

These last few months have been difficult, knowing that Lemon Hound would be ending, not quite believing it. I've been torn between wanting--as has been my feeling from the beginning--to save this as a space for women and diverse voices--and wanting my life back; between knowing that we need to provide more opportunities for writers...
Bhanu Kapil: from Ban En Banlieue

Bhanu Kapil: from Ban En Banlieue

Where is the body in the poem? This is a question I have been asking a lot lately, and will continue to ask as I embark on a collection of essays about poetry. This is not a question the reader will have to ask of Bhanu Kapil's work though. The body is right there, in...
Northern British Columbia: Six Poets

Northern British Columbia: Six Poets

I sought these poets knowing I was catching only a slice of northern BC’s writers, in order to offer a glimpse into some of what’s going on out here. This doesn’t represent a renaissance – there have been poets toiling in these eskers and valleys for ages – but it’s proof of a region’s literature...

Emma Donoghue: You Never Finish Your Research

In 2013 Emma Donoghue visited Concordia for a reading and a master class. She talked about the joy of the archives and the endless research involved in writing fiction. WR Emma Donoghue Master 2013

Bruce Whiteman: from Tablature

LUTE MUSIC Yeats said music makes us crazy. At its behest, lazy distracted men and women fall into swamps or drown embracing the moon. Oh but that was booze, the test that Li Po failed, flailing visibly in silence, out of air and out of time. No grace there but in the poetry, the story...

Sarah Tolmie: from Trio

66 Have you ever seen a grafted tree? They’re rare. I once saw one that bore apples and pears. It was truly weird and strangely beautiful, Twice-fruited. Copious, plentiful, Glorious. Could that be us? Is this The image I should use? Not ancient Vice, unnatural growth, nature underneath The yoke, but free to flower twice,...
An Introduction: Barbara Mor

An Introduction: Barbara Mor

At Yale recently, I gave a reading accompanied by two graduate students. One of them, Edgar Garcia, started his reading by introducing a poet he said that he had discovered in submissions and had since found, met, interviewed and published. Her name was Barbara Mor. She passed away this year, but not before she found...
