Throughout May the League has been posting Ask a Shortlister mini interviews with questions like Who would you be if you weren’t a poet?
and What are You Reading?

Shortlisted authors were also invited to review each other’s work. Kim Trainor– who is shortlisted for the Raymond Souster Award for Ledi– wrote a numbered review of The Missing Field and I wrote a review of Ledi.

The League has been publishing poems from the shortlisted collections through their Poetry Pause mailing list. Poems can also be read on the League’s website. Winners of the awards will be announced at the League’s annual meeting in June. Anyways we write poetry so WE’RE ALL WINNERS!!! (or losers, depending on how you look at it.)
