A Poetry Reading at the Elizabeth Bishop Festival

One of the many exciting events that will take place at the Elizabeth Bishop Festival on 8 August 2015 will be a morning poetry reading with Joanne Light, Chad Norman, Andrew Patterson and Libby Schofield. We will be profiling each of these artists in the next weeks. This post is a profile of Chad Norman.


Chad Norman resides in Truro, N.S. His poems have appeared in literary publications around the world. His collection, Masstown, which celebrates the once-thriving family-owned dairy farm industry of that area, came out in 2013 from Black Moss Press (http://blackmosspress.com/chad-norman/). A new collection, Book of Awe, poems which capture the state of awe through a return to gardening, is due out Fall 2015, again from Black Moss Press.
Chad has published fifteen books of poetry in a career that spans twenty-five years. He has won the B.C. Writers’ Poetry Contest, as well as the Gwendolyn MacEwen Memorial Award.
