Reading poetry in the woods

An award-winning poet is making his way to UBC Okangan.

Canadian poet Jordan Scott is hosting a public reading next week, as part of the Summer Writing Intensive program at UBC’s Okanagan campus.

Scott is a visiting author with UBC Okanagan’s Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies and is taking part in the faculty’s A Creative Writing Collaboratory Summer Writing Intensive program, run by assistant professor, author and poet Matt Rader.

Scott was nominated for the 2009 Dorothy Livesay Prize for Poetry, and is the current Writer in Residence at Simon Fraser University. His book titles include Silt, blert, DECOMP, and Clearance Process and his long poem, Night & Ox will be published this fall.
