Ian Williams Interviews 2022 Griffin Poetry Prize Canadian Finalist Liz Howard

“Writing this letter enabled me to grapple with the grief and the immensity of the circumstances that I found myself in.” —Liz Howard

In this interview with Griffin Trustee Ian Williams, 2022 Griffin Poetry Prize Canadian Finalist Liz Howard discusses, among other things, what it’s like to being inside her brain, meeting her father as he was passing away, and the transformational power of language. The interview includes a reading of “Spring Letter” from Howard’s shortlisted collection, Letters in a Bruised Cosmos (McClelland & Stewart).
