I got word the other day that George McWhirter is taking my poem "Leg-in-Boot Square" for his Vancouver verse map anthology. Also might be taking "Heron, False Creek." If he does, that would make "Heron" my most-anthologized poem. Ha. I'm looking forward to this book. It's a really neat idea. My poem "Pat's Grocery" appeared in a similar Halifax anthology, edited by then-laureate Sue McLeod, a couple of years ago. That was a beautifully produced book, with poems, stories and photos, designed inside and out by my old university pal Aaron Harpell of Hammerhead Design. One hopes that Anvil Press comes close to producing so appealing a book.
