The Art of the Personal Ad

Be sure not to "miss" Ian Williams at Thin Air!

The equation written on the front page of Ian Williams' website is a short form review of the success he's found with Personals, his latest book of poetry. Being shortlisted for both the Griffin Poetry Prize and the Robert Kroetsch Poetry Book Award certainly does add up to a happy author. Winnipeg readers will have a chance to catch a glimpse of Williams' formula at Thin Air's main stage event, "Between a Rock and a Hard Place," on Thursday, September 26, where he will be reading from his collection.

In the meantime, in the event that at Thin Air, you miss the opportunity to connect with Ian Williams, this interview with CBC's Canada Writers may help to get you acquainted. If the opportunity does pass, also check out his Griffin Poetry Prize page for a hint as to how one might write their own personal advertisement.

Don't miss him!
