Peacock and Griffin Prize-winning poet A.F. Moritz, editor of this year’s Best Canadian Poetry chats with The National Post’s The Afterward.

“The annual anthology can be a magnet, I think, for the many people who would like to know contemporary poetry but are blocked, sometimes by lack of access, and sometimes by bewilderment, a sense that they don’t know which they should try of the many magazines, and which of the many new books by poets they don’t know by reputation. The Best Canadian Poetry gives a window on that world that is complete in itself but also can act as a guide to further exploration.”
