After the Blizzard

Got the proofs for my "chipbook" After the Blizzard from the good folks at littlefishcartpress the other day. We still haven't settled on a cover image, but it shouldn't be long till the thing's in print. For those unfamiliar with the chipbook, it's a mini chapbook, about 4 inches square, very attractive. Mine consists of a linked crown of seven sonnets about the record-breaking blizzard, dubbed "White Juan," that hit Halifax in the winter of '03/'04. It was originally published in The Fiddlehead in 2005 and is included in Track & Trace, my next trade collection of poems, due out in 2009 (or so). The text is also online at UofT's ZW site. The chipbook's a ltd. ed.--possibly as few as 50 copies--so if you want one, best to put in an order with the fishcart folks soon.
