In Memoriam: Barry McKinnon, 1944–2023

We are deeply saddened by the news that poet, designer, editor, and educator
Barry McKinnon has passed away. He was the author of more than twenty books and chapbooks. McKinnon favoured the long poem for the form’s ability to allow him to “articulate the poem’s central truth from various & variable angles & perspectives.” McKinnon will be sorely missed. Our thoughts are with his friends, family, and community at this time.
