In December 2005, George Bowering found himself stalled on a novel in progress. Naturally, the solution to writer’s block is to keep writing, anything. He made a New Year’s resolution to write a poem every day for the 365 days of 2006. Each month led to a new structure and set of rules for framing each section of poems.
Each month of the result, My Darling Nellie Grey, is being reviewed by Daniel Zomparelli for Geist on a weekly basis. This collection of ongoing reviews is being referred to as “The Summer of Bowering”.
