above/ground press introduces a "poem" broadside sub-set curated by Phil Hall: Sadiqa de Meijer + Kirsteen MacLeod

above/ground press introduces a new sub-series of the "poem" broadsides, the "Queen’s University writer-in-residence (2012) poem-pick," curated by award-winning poet and current Queen's University writer-in-residence, Phil Hall. As Hall writes:
In my capacity as Writer-In-Residence at Queen's University this fall, I have been meeting some terrific poets, both students at the University, & younger members of Kingston's large writing community.

To encourage these poets, and to share their poems in a wider, brighter form -- above/ground press & I offer these brief numbered POEM fliers, a small autumn series to unfold...

The first two pieces are now available:
by Sadiqa de Meijer
above/ground press broadside #312
& Queen’s University writer-in-residence (2012) poem-pick # 1


Meditation On Stress
by Kirsteen MacLeod

& Queen’s University writer-in-residence (2012) poem-pick # 2

Sadiqa de Meijer’s poetry has appeared in a number of journals, as well as in the Best Canadian Poetry in English series and in the anthology Villanelles. Her poem “Great Aunt Unmarried” won the 2012 CBC Poetry Prize.
