Hi everyone! Welcome to a special edition of The Interruption. Today and for the next few episodes we will be featuring interviews with and readings by the Canadian poets who have been shortlisted for the prestigious Griffin Poetry Prize.
Today I am speaking with Vancouver poet Jane Munro, whose book of poems, Blue Sonoma, was published by Brick Books in 2014. Jane is the author of five previous books of poetry, most recently Active Pass (2010) and Point No Point (2006). Her work has received the Bliss Carman Poetry Award, the Macmillan Prize for Poetry, and been nominated for the Pat Lowther Award.
The Interruption is a 49th Shelf–Books on the Radio collaboration in which I interview Canadian writers about the surprising things that inform, inspire, and even interrupt their creative process.Thanks to our friends at the Griffin Poetry Prize for being so helpful in arranging these interviews.*****
