summer update

Posted by Daniela Elza on Jul 04 2015

I am pleased to say that my short short story Tempera in the Kitchen just got accepted for publication in Shale: Anthology of Short Fiction (Texture Press, US, 2015). It is a story I wrote quite some time ago, before I had kids. That puts it at about 20 or so years old.

In June I contributed a piece to a project from Brick Books in honour of their 40th anniversary. It is a year long project of Celebration of Canadian Poetry hosted on the Brick Books site. Click on the highlighted title to go to the piece. Hope you browse around at some of the other entries.

A few other things that came out in the mean time:

The latest issue of Prism international, 53.3, 2015 published three new poems. Thank you to the editors for selecting these.

  • autobiography of grief 1
  • autobiography of grief 2
  • what remains

I have two poems in the Make It True: Poetry From Cascadia (Leaf Press, 2015). This anthology came out just in time for the 5th Cascadia Gathering in Nanaimo.

  • intimate harbours
  • the salt of being

Last month the debut issue of a new journal came out. Cede Poetry. It was started here by a local poet and I am happy to have a very new poem in it:

  • waking up with you
  • To view and purchase ($3.00) the inaugural issue click here and scroll down until you see it. Or click on purchase and it will take you to it.

    And forthcoming in August is:

  • speaking refuge
  • methodology II
  • in Room Magazine, 38.3, 2015.

Things to look forward to:
I will be giving a workshop at Word, Vancouver in September and likely reading for Room at their tent. More information on that as it becomes available. Stay tuned.
