Sessions from the DreamHouse Aria

 i've been working on turning my long poem, Sessions from the DreamHouse Aria into a novella. Here is a brief explanation and a reading of excerpts from the work. Content Warning: mentions of childhood trauma and abuse.

Thank you to the League of Canadian Poets for funding the video and to the Ontario Arts Council for supporting the project this year through its Recommender Grants for Writers program, and to Coach House Books for recommending the work. 

Thanks also to rob mclennan who published excerpts from the long poem in 17 Seconds Magazine.

I'm very happy this work is able to see the light of day.
