Stephanie Bolster’s forthcoming fall anthology The Best of Canadian Poetry has chosen as part of Quill and Quire’s Fall Preview!

Based on the successful American version that is edited yearly by David Lehman, the anthology is drawn from Canadian literary journals and magazines from the proceeding year. From a long list of 100 poems this year’s guest editor Stephanie Bolster has chosen 50 of the best Canadian poems published in 2007. First time Canadian readers, often baffled by proliferating poems and poets, will be able to tap into the remarkable poetry scene, checking out the currents and cross currents of poetry in a volume distilled by a round robin of distinguished editorial taste.
