Congratulations to Cecily Nicholson! Nicholson’s latest book, From the Poplars, has won the Dorothy Livesay Poetry Prize. The prize was awarded at the B.C. Book Prizes gala on Saturday evening, April 25. (See winners and nominees in every category here – and see a photo of Nicholson accepting the prize here.)
From the Poplars is a collection of documentary poetry that reflects on the storied history of Poplar Island in New Westminster, B.C. Rabble.ca hailed it as “a compelling blend of poetic research, personal infusion, and historical subjectivity while remaining urgent and insightful. It’s a call to arms for environmental consciousness, and a text monument of loss and shame.”
Read poems from From the Poplars which were recently published in Lemon Hound.

On Meta-Talon today, please enjoy the full text of the presentation given by Carl Peters at the Modern Languages Association convention in New York City on January 7, 2018. This talk responds to the question posed in the MLA convention session Rhetoric in Post-Factual Times: how to perform textual analysis in a time when facts are no longer the marker of good argumentation. (Peters’s talk is also related to his work on Stein; Peters is recently the author of Studies in Description: Reading Gertrude Stein’s Tender Buttons.)
