Interview with Anita Lahey

Recently, I sat down with Canadian poet and journalist Anita Lahey to talk about her latest book of poems Spinning Side Kick (Signal Editions, 2011). Anita's poetry is equal parts playful and profound, and our conversation bounced from the fun of onomatopoeia to the foggy future of literary magazines.

 Anita Lahey's previous book Out to Dry in Cape Breton (Signal Editions, 2006) was nominated for the Ottawa Book Award and the Trillium book award for poetry. Previously, she was the editor of Arc Poetry Magazine. She currently lives in Fredericton, NB Canada.
