My first issue as poetry editor of This Magazine features the work of Gwen Benaway.
Gwen Benaway is of Anishinaabe and Métis descent. Her first collection of poetry, Ceremonies for the Dead, was published in 2013 and her second collection of poetry, Passage, was released in 2016 from Kegedonce Press. Her third collection of poetry is forthcoming from Bookthug in 2017/2018.
I can’t recommend Gwen’s latest book, Passage, enough.
