Intersecting Sets: A Poet Looks at Science has been shortlisted for the Wilfrid Eggleston Award for non-fiction — a prize given annually by the Writers Guild of Alberta. The award is named for the prominent journalist and founder of the Carleton School of Journalism who was born in Alberta.
An excerpt from the book, The Ultraviolet Catastrophe, published by The New Quarterly in its special QuArc issue, has also been shortlisted for a National Magazine Award in the essay category.
Another excerpt, from the essay “Poetry and Scale” appeared in Los Angeles-based Rattle magazine. And a third excerpt is included in the spring, 2012 issue of Queen’s Quarterly.
