Governor General Award for Poetry

goes to Don Domanski, Halifax, for All Our Wonder Unavenged(Brick Books). i haven't read the book yet, nor any of Domanski's work.

i'm sad that Rob Winger didn't win for Muybridge's Horse (Nightwood Editions). I've raved about that book already and will again in an upcoming issue of http://www.ottawater.com/, so I won't say more. there will be more awards and this book has already received a lot of acclaim, including being on the list of GG finalists, which is pretty cool.

the main thing is that i hope these awards cause more people to hear about all the nominees and to buy more poetry.
