Hump by Ariel Gordon Shortlisted for Two Book Awards

Hump by Ariel Gordon Hump, Ariel Gordon’s 2010 collection of poetry, shortlisted for two Manitoba Book Awards awards!
Her debut made the list for the Aqua Books Lansdowne Prize for Poetry/Prix Lansdowne de poésie and the Eileen McTavish Sykes Award for Best First Book.

The awards will be presented at the Manitoba Book Awards gala, taking place Sunday April 17th at the Centre Culturel Franco-Manitobain and hosted by Catherine Hunter.

The shortlists and recipients are selected by a variety of juries, comprised of writers, publishers and other book industry personnel from across Canada.
Hump (Palimpsest Press, 2010) is a mash-up of pregnancy-and-mothering poems and urban/nature/love poems that functions as an anti-sentiment manifesto from Winnipeg writer Ariel Gordon. Month by month, stanza by stanza, Gordon attempts to adequately represent the wonder and devilment of being-with-child. Hump is a love poem written simultaneously to a father and child, to a lover and the glimmer in his eye, and to a city that is gritty, faded, but still greener-than-most.
