Annick MacAskill's "No Meeting Without Body"


Annick MacAskill's


The poems in Annick MacAskill's debut collection, No Meeting Without Body are confident and crisp. Departing from works of art and literature, historical figures, myth, and anecdote, her poems draw the reader into their subjects with unaffected frankness and intimacy, answering society's most reductive forces with a resistance rooted in the dignity of human connection. 

Annick Macaskill is the author of a chapbook entitled Brotherly Love: Poems of Sappho and Charaxos (2016). Her poems have appeared in journals such as Grain, Prism International, Versal, Room Magazine, The Fiddlehead, and Arc. She has been selected as a finalist for the CBC Canada Writes Poetry Prize, the Ralph Gustafson Poetry Prize, and a Pushcart Prize. Originally from Ontario, she currently lives in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
