Poet in the Family

Summer 2013 · Vol. 36 No. 1

This issue starts with Sharon Caseburg’s candid and insightful conversation with poet Ken Babstock about poetry and family and his writing process which is aptly followed by a selection of both new — including the poem “Half-Macedonian,” a lullaby he wrote when his son was still very small — and previously published work from his most recent and Griffin Poetry Award-winning collection, Methodist Hatchet. Along with Ken Babstock’s poetry we have new work from Patricia Young, Barbara Black and Julia McCarthy to mention just some of the writing you’ll find in the pages to come. Also, CV2 is very pleased and excited to present a new feature, “Resistance/Words for the Revolution”: writing inspired by the Idle No More movement and the recent activities protesting the treatment of Aboriginal peoples in Canada.
