Congratulations to Danny Jacobs, who is on the shortlist for the Acorn-Plantos 2014 Award for People’s Poetry!
Danny’s book, Songs that Remind Us of Factories, is a book of poems that explore how we remain connected: to the world outside, to our ideas of home, to each other, and to ourselves.
The Acorn-Plantos Award for Peoples Poetry is awarded annually to a Canadian poet, based on a book published in the previous calendar year. The work should follow in the tradition of Acorn, Livesay, Purdy, Plantos and others by being accessible to all people in its use of language and image.
Marita Dachsel (Glossolalia, Anvil Press), Kanina Dawson (Masham Means Evening, Coteau Books), Lisa Shatsky (Blame it on the Moon, Black Moss), and Ann Shin (The Family China, Brick Books) are also on the shortlist. The winner will be announced in November, 2014.
