elm & ampersand is a poetry podcast hosted by Jenna Lyn Albert and Rebecca Salazar. It is recorded in Fredericton, New Brunswick, on the unceded and traditional territories of the Wolastoqiyik and the Mi’kmaq.
In this episode, we catch up with Amanda Jernigan and Rob Taylor, who were in town on tour for the anthology BEST CANADIAN POETRY 2019 (Biblioasis, 2019). They also discuss the book WHAT THE POETS ARE DOING (Nightwood Editions, 2018) for which Rob served as editor. Amanda reads the prologue from YEARS, MONTHS, AND DAYS (Biblioasis, 2018) and Rob reads “Twenty-Four Weeks” from THE NEWS (Gaspereau Press, 2016).
