Check out the summer issue of Maisonneuve for a interesting sequence of prose poems by Mary Dalton (not online). They were written to accompany an exquisite photography project called All the Clubs from Holyrood to Brigus, the result of Scott Walden visiting the clubs and legion halls along Newfoundland's Route 60.
Thus far, Dalton is having one hell of a year. She’s the only Canadian (not counting fellow Atlantic poet Elizabeth Bishop) included in anthology The Art of the Sonnet, she’s in Carcanet’s Modern Canadian Poetry Anthology, and Lorna Crozier picked her suite of centos (first published in Riddle Fence) for Best Canadian Poetry 2010.
