I’m so delighted to have my flâneur poem “Montreal – In Passing” included in the new issue of StepAway Magazine.
My first published poem! I wrote the first draft in 2008 when I was doing my MFA in Creative Writing. My instructor, poet Jonathan Weinert, suggested I read Frank O’Hara’s “A Step Away From Them” and then “take a walk in your neighbourhood and write down whatever you notice”.
I have been going over Jonathan’s feedback and editing it ever since!
Let’s hope the next one doesn’t take as long.
