Summer Issue

Summer 2018 · Vol. 41 No. 1

In this issue we are pleased to feature three outstanding Canadian poets in conversation. First up, award-winning poet, literary critic and physician Shane Neilson (featured on the cover) talks with CV2 about his two newest publishing projects set for publication in 2018. Next up, Garry Thomas Morse, author of four collections of poetry — two shortlisted for the Governor General’s Poetry Award—talks with CV2’s new Editorial Assistant and poet, Chelsea Peters, about his newest collection Safety Sand, his second since moving to Manitoba five years ago. Third up, Angeline Schellenberg — whose first poetry collection Tell Them It Was Mozart won three awards at the Manitoba Book Awards in 2017 — talks with critic, poet and publisher Sharon Caseburg about the collection, a work that centres on her experience of her two children’s autism diagnosis.
