I am honoured to have been interviewed recently by Renée Sarojini Saklikar, my writing mentor and good friend. Renée is a critically acclaimed poet whose work has appeared in numerous literary journals and newspapers. Her first book of poetry, children of air india, was just published last month, and is a series of elegiac sequences exploring the nature of individual loss, situated within public trauma. I recently had the pleasure of collaborating with her on the relaunch of thecanadaproject: a lifelong poem chronicle, a blog that explores issues of place, identity, and language.
Stay tuned tomorrow for the first of a two parter on my favourite winter-themed Ekostory!
