In addition to welcoming students into the Creative Writing & Publishing program this past fall, Professor Sarah Tsiang has been busy to say the least! She recently launched two new children’s books—Sugar and Snails in March and Toesy Toes in April—and has poems popping up in print all over the place. You can catch up with her recent verse in current or upcoming issues of The New Quarterly (3 poems) and CV2 (3 poems) and can look forward to reading her contribution to the upcoming anthology project Motherhood in Precarious Times. As if that weren’t enough, Sarah is featured in Tightrope Books’ The Best of the Best Canadian Poetry in English collection.

Sarah was also featured in a recent profile by Wayne Grady in the Kingston Whig-Standard, and in the April 2018 issue of Quill & Quire, where she was recognized for her pioneering of The CW&P Pledge, which establishes clear boundaries and expectations governing relationships between mentors and mentees in Sheridan’s new Honours Bachelor of Creative Writing & Publishing.

Lastly, and in case you missed it in the Editors’ Welcome to this issue, her excellent poem “Women’s work” has been shortlisted in ARC magazine’s Poem of the Year contest. Please take a minute to read the poem here, and CAST YOUR VOTE for “Women’s work” by April 30!

Congratulations, Sarah!
