St. John's Poetry Panel in The New Quarterly

The most recent issue of The New Quarterly is now out. In it, you'll find a feature on a panel of poet-critics that was hosted by the Writers' Alliance of Newfoundland and Labrador at the RCA Gallery in St. John's. Patrick Warner moderated a discussion on poetry and poetry criticism between Mark Callanan, Amanda Jernigan, George Murray and Carmine Starnino. The New Quarterly has published the transcript of their discussion along with a poem and a selection of critical prose from each of the panelists. It's worth checking out.
