Introducing the new Poetry Quarter curator

The Glebe Report’s Poetry Quarter has a new curator!

Deborah-Anne Tunney is an Ottawa poet, novelist and short-story writer whose writing has appeared in numerous literary journals and anthologies. Her novel, Winter Willow, was published in 2019. Her book of linked short stories, The View from the Lane, published in 2014, reflects the people and relationships of a neighbourhood in Ottawa. And her first collection of poetry, A Different Wolf, was published in 2020 and won the 2021 Archibald Lampman award, presented by the literary magazine Arc for the year’s best work of poetry by a writer living in the National Capital Region.

Tunney’s role as curator of the Glebe Report’s Poetry Quarter will be to set themes and select submitted poems for publication. The Glebe Report is happy to welcome her to this important role.

“Greetings to Glebe Report readers, and especially to Poetry Quarter readers and poets. I am very excited to be the new editor of the Poetry Quarter and only hope I can fulfil the requirements with the same competence and grace as my predecessor, JC Sulzenko. As a lover of poetry and a poet myself, I am anxious to read your poems and look forward to being part of the Glebe Report poetry community.”

Poets of the Glebe, start your engines! Get your pens ready for our next Poetry Quarter in June.
