About the Poets
Brian Bartlett is the author of six collections of poetry, including The Watchmaker’s Table and Wanting the Day: Selected Poems, which was published in both Canada and Britain, and received the Atlantic Poetry Prize. He has also edited three books of selected poems: Earthly Pages: The Poetry of Don Domanski, The Essential James Reaney, and The Essential Robert Gibbs. Since 1990, has taught creative writing and literature at Saint Mary’s University. He is currently trying to find publishers for two manuscripts: a gathering of seven long poems all in the form of “haiku montages,” and a prose “book of days,” 366 paragraphs of nature writing (one for each day of the year, including an extra for leap years).
Carole Glasser Langille’s most recent book, Church of the Exquisite Panic: The Ophelia Poems, was published in the fall of 2012. She is also the author of a collection of short stories, When I Always Wanted Something. Six poems from her book Late in a Slow Time, were put to music by Chan Ka Nin and recorded by Duo Concertante. She teaches Creative Writing: Poetry at Dalhousie University.
