Poetry in motion

Karen Solie, Doyali Islam, and Matthew Walsh gather together to discuss the practice of poetry and its effects on both poets and readers

FOR THIS YEAR’S Poetry Month feature, Q&Q brought together three Canadian poets at various career stages for a conversation about craft and process.

Karen Solie is the author of five books of poetry. Her collection Pigeon won the Grifin Poetry Prize, the Pat Lowther Memorial Award, and the Trillium Book Award for Poetry. Her collection The Road In Is Not the Same Road Out was shortlisted for the 2016 Trillium Book Award. Solie’s latest book is The Caiplie Caves (House of Anansi Press).

Doyali Islam is the author of one previous collection, Yusuf and the Lotus Flower (Buschek Books). Her poems have appeared in The Best Canadian Poetry in English, The Fiddlehead, Kenyon Review, and elsewhere. Her poem “35th Parallel” won the grand prize in the Contemporary Verse 2 35th Anniversary Contest. Islam’s sophomore collection is heft (McClelland & Stewart).
