CBC Poetry Prize longlist : Bolster + mclennan,
above/ground press authors Stephanie Bolster and rob mclennan made the 2017 CBC Poetry Prize longlist, alongside thirty-one other Canadian writers. Hooray! Congratulations to all! Stephanie Bolster is the author of more than a couple of above/ground press titles still in print, including Three Bloody Words: Twentieth Anniversary Edition (2016) and GHOSTS (2017), which is made up of poems from the same work-in-progress as her poems on the longlist; and rob mclennan is the author of far too many items that remain in print, but most recently include King Kong (2014) and It's still winter (2017), which is also made up of poems from the same work-in-progress as his poems on the longlist.
