“Some of us can only afford a half a dozen or so subscriptions to literary magazines, so the publication of The Best Canadian Poetry in English, now in its third year, is a welcome event.”—Maxianne Berger, Rover Arts
“This would be an excellent book for the academic and the casual poetry fan who wants to dust off the rust in their CanLit poetry ligaments.” —Michael Peckham, Broken Pencil
“The collection is a unique glimpse at a diversity of poets, from Ottawa's David O'Meara to Margaret Atwood to the revered P.K. Page.” —Cormac Rae, Ottawa Xpress
