Books I have loved. An Interview.

An interview with Open Book Ontario about books I have loved. (For the record, I had to read The Iliad in order to write the Cassandra poems. It kinda grew on me after a while.)

Rhonda Douglas in Thailand

Canadian writer Debra Martens has an interesting blog profiling writers who end up abroad for one reason or another.

This is a post about a trip to Thailand where I glued sandals together and got a hate-on for a rooster. It has a photo of a very young me: check out that baby-face!

My interview with Rob McLennan

My friend Rob (I have known him long enough to use capital letters) has an incredible literary blog. I think of it as one of those bookstores you stumble upon while travelling that has *everything* you can think of. (Who knew you needed that book on Senegalese birds?)

Here is an early interview he did with me that is focused around writing process: http://robmclennan.blogspot.ca/2010/10/12-or-20-questions-with-rhonda-douglas.html

My review of a poetry anthology in the “Best Canadian Poetry” annual series

I occasionally do reviews. Here is a review of a poetry anthology in the “Best Canadian Poetry” annual series, the 2010 edition. Read the review here at Arc Poetry Magazine and if you’re interested, the anthology is published by Tightrope Books and you can order it directly from them.

If you’re interested in sampling some contemporary Canadian poetry, I recommend this annual anthology.
