Bio Catherine Graham is an award-winning poet, novelist and creative-writing teacher. Her sixth poetry collection, The Celery Forest, was named a CBC Best Book of the Year and was a finalist for the Fred Cogswell Award for Excellence in Poetry. Michael Longley praised it as “a work of great fortitude and invention, full of jewel-like moments and dark gnomic utterance.” Her work has been translated into Greek, Serbo-Croatian, Bangla, Chinese and Spanish and she has appeared on CBC Radio’s The Next Chapter. She teaches creative writing at the University of Toronto where she won an Excellence in Teaching Award. Publications include The Malahat Review, Poetry Daily, IceFloe Press, Glasgow Review of Books, Gutter Magazine, Poetry Ireland and more. A finalist for the Montreal International Poetry Prize, she has won the Arc Poetry Award of Awesomeness and her poems have been nominated for the 2020 National Magazine Award by Exile Magazine. Her debut novel Quarry won an IPPY Award Gold Medal, “The Very Best!” Book Awards for Best Fiction and was a finalist for the Sarton Women’s Book Award and Fred Kerner Book Award. A previous winner of the Toronto International Festival of Authors’ Poetry NOW, she leads their monthly Book Club and interviews for By the Lake Book Club. Æther: An Out-of-Body Lyric is her seventh poetry collection. Her second novel, The Most Cunning Heart, is forthcoming.
