We’re really excited to see this terrific review of Liquid Amber’s 2021 anthology Lockdown Poetry: The Covid Long Haul out in Rochford Street Review today. Thanks to Mark Roberts of Rochford Street, Sharon Monagle for the striking cover image and to Belinda Calderone for her thoughtful reading of this collection of wonderful poems from the Liquid Amber poetry community. We are still writing into and out of the strange hiatus we found ourselves in!

2020 Shelter in Place Poetry Reading and Artist Talk: A collaborative exhibition of poetry and image
Visual artist Sharon Monagle and I were thrilled to open the exhibition of 2020 Shelter in Place last week and to launch the book of this collaborative project – a beautiful publication by Liquid Amber Press (available at the gallery or available here).
This was a project based in individual and collective/communal responses to the challenges of 2020 – we’d love to have your company to hear me read through the year’s seasons, surrounded by Sharon’s wonderful art work: Saturday May 1, 2-4 at the Kingston G3 Art Space in Parkdale.

As we all know, 2020 was certainly a rough ride in many ways. However, for me it was also a very productive time both in terms of my own poetry practice and my collaborations with visual artist Sharon Monagle – even if some of those collaborations were via technology!
2021 is now seeing the culmination of that work, with the recent publication of my latest book of poetry plus a forthcoming exhibition with Sharon.
I’m really proud of my new collection, This Shuttered Eye – all
about looking at the world of nature, of art and of human
interactions – and how we are shaped by those acts of
engagement, the shutterings of the imagination’s eye
Available here from Girls on Key Press.
I would also like to announce an exhibition of conversations in poetry and paint, 2020 Shelter in Place, and invite you to attend one or both of our events:
- the Opening of the Exhibition on Thursday April 15 (launched by poet Anne M. Carson) and
- the Interactive Poetry Reading and Artist Talk, Saturday March 1, 2-4, at the Kingston G3 Gallery Space in Parkdale.
The book of the exhibition (Liquid Amber Press) will be available at the Gallery – as will the book of the collaborative project Sharon and I did before the onset of Covid-19, Who do I think I am?
We hope to see you there!
