We recently had the pleasure of visiting Whitehorse to put on a publishing workshop for the lovely folks at the Whitehorse Poetry Society, and to launch Clea Roberts’s new book of poetry Here Is Where We Disembark. If you’ve never been, go. Immediately. This city rocks. Highlights include:
–The Whitehorse Poetry Society: every two years they put on a killer poetry festival; past guests have included Michael Ondaatje and Don McKay.
–The Yukon Arts Centre: these folks make sure that Whitehorsians have access to top notch theatre, music, dance, visual, and literary arts.
–Yukon Gold Beer: There’s a Robert Service poem on the can. Enough said.
