AudioText podcasts!

Hey y'all,

It feels like ages since I've posted here. I've been really busy lately, with the new radio show, the yoga reception job, interviews, and writing projects. I got a little panicky yesterday, but now all is good again. There's time.

In other news, AudioText is up and running, and it's going GREAT. I'm having so much fun. And now, the moment you've been waiting for: the podcasts are working! It was all my fault they weren't actually, but I've figured it out, and now it seems to be working.

You can listen to the most recent show here:

It was an interview with Kevan Cameron AKA Scruffmouth, and a reading from Jordan Scott's blert. It was amazing. But don't take my word for it....

wax poetic

Hey all,

Yesterday I had the pleasure of being a guest on RC Weslowski, SR Duncan, and Diane Laloge's poetry show on CFRO 102.1, COOP radio. It was really wonderful for me to get to read some of my poetry on the air and be able to talk about it too, in terms of my influences, theories about what poetry is and means, and even some of the gnarly gender stuff i've been dealing with lately. I have this chunk of archive here, so you can just scroll to about halfway through and hear the interview. I'll make it into an mp3 somehow soon, but in the meantime:

AudioText at last!

Dear friends,

Good news! The long-awaited new poetry show exists! In the real world! You can even podcast it!

AudioText is a show about Canadian writing. I will be playing interviews, spoken word cds, and recordings of poetry, short story readings, and whatever else I can think of. Check it out at 6pm every Wednesday at 101.9FM, or listen online at, or podcast it at

This week: an interview with Bonnie Nish from Pandora's Collective, some spoken word from the poetry slam, and a delicious reading (of my choice) by your lovely host, me.

Last night, at Cafe Deux Soleils, I and 7 other of the top women poets from this season competed to represent the VanSlam at the Women of the World Poetry Slam in Detroit in March. It was a great night--Sasha Langford was the very deserving winner (she was freaking fantastic) and I won third. It was a great night for women's poetry. The lovely Warren Dean Fulton did this 'montage' of highlights from everyone--check it out here.
