The Open Issue

Fall 2006. Vol. 29 No.2

CV2’s first annual Open Issue features two in depth interviews by Sharon Caseburg—one with internationally renowned Bosian-Canadian poet Goran Simic about his writing and the compassion of poetry in the face of war, and a second with Mark Abley, a well-known and respected Canadian author and poet, about his experiences as the editor of the first posthumous collection of previously unpublished poetry by the late and wonderful grand dame of words, Anne Szumigalski, recently published by Brick Books. This issue includes an essay by poet and CV2 French editor Laurent Poliquin, as well as poetry by Marie d’Anjou, Eugene Dubnov, Paddy McCallum, Jan Conn and many more.
