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...

Damian Rogers on Elise Partridge

ON GENEROSITY, CORRESPONDENCE, AND EMBRACING EXILE I think the exile of poetry is also the exile of the best of humankind. —Octavio Paz Why shouldn’t I drift off like a lost balloon?
