Dividing the Wayside wins Archibald Lampman Award!

A big congratulations goes out to Jenny Haysom for winning the Lampman Award with her book Dividing the Wayside!

“Dividing the Wayside is at once tender, generous, and lyrically explosive. The poet shines as she engages with writers and artists, examines the particulars of love and womanhood, and confronts both the beauty and ugliness of nature and human nature. Unflinchingly honest, the speakers in this collection find significance in beetle shells, dust, constellations, and everything in between. Much like her image of the heron catching fish in the shallows, Jenny Haysom, too, is a diviner. Open to the world, Haysom’s poetry deftly seizes the “sparks that dash and / turn like glitter.”—2019 Archibald Lampman Award jurors
