Archibald Lampman Award Shortlist

Arc Poetry Magazine is proud to present—drumroll—the 2011 Lampman shortlist! The Archibald Lampman Award is presented annually to an outstanding collection of English-language poetry by an author living in the National Capital Region.

Nina Berkhout, Arrivals and Departures, (BuschekBooks)

Terry Ann Carter, A Crazy Man Thinks He’s Ernest in Paris, (Black Moss Press)

Paul Tyler, A Short History of Forgetting, (Gaspereau Press)

The award will be presented on October 27, 2012 at Library and Archives Canada, in conjunction with the Ottawa Book Awards.

And again, one of the finalists was a facilitator for Tree Seeds Workshop Series. Again because TA Carter led workshops last fall. GG finalist Phil Hall will facilitate again in December and recent Tree Facilitator Claudia Coutu Radmore is shortlisted at Vallum. What a day for announcements. Does Ottawa Valley rule the nation or what?
