It’s Week One of #SeptemberWomenPoets and my first theme is Canadian Women, naturally. It will go a little like this:

Saturday:

  • Wanda Campbell, LOOKING FOR LUCY
  • Jill Battson, ASHES ARE BONE AND DUST

Sunday:

  • Wanda Campbell, KALAMKARI AND CORDILLERA
  • Rita Joe, THE BLIND MAN’S EYES
  • Sarah Tolmie, TRIO

Monday:

  • Margaret Atwood, TWO-HEADED POEMS
  • Heather MacLeod, THE LITTLE YELLOW HOUSE
  • Laura Clarke, DECLINE OF THE ANIMAL KINGDOM

Tuesday:

  • Leanne Betasamosake Simpson, ISLANDS OF DECOLONIAL LOVE
  • Margo Wheaton, THE UNLIT PATH BEHIND THE HOUSE

Wednesday:

  • Lindsay Marshall, CLAY POTS AND BONES = Pka’wo’qq aq waqntal
  • Lori Cayer, DOPAMINE BLUNDER

Thursday:

  • Eleonore Schönmaier, DUST BLOWN SIDE OF THE JOURNEY

Next Saturday, September 8, I’ll make a Week Two list. I’m planning the theme to be American women of colour (global black women poets will be Week Four, just to clarify). On Sunday, September 9, I’ll do a quick-and-dirty review of Week One, plus a running total of poets + collections.
