I know something you don’t know

I’m so excited to announce that my debut book-length collection of poetry is forthcoming with Gordon Hill Press in Spring 2020! This collection has been in the works for a number of years and I’m so excited to see it take shape.

Gordon Hill Press is pleased to announce I know something you don’t know, a book of poetry by Amy LeBlanc, to be published in Spring 2020.

A note taped to ceramic tile, a wasp’s nest, a veil in a bell jar, and a bird’s nest with an abandoned pair of cufflinks – I know something you don’t know, resides in the intersection of folklore and femininity where the body is both assured and lurid. With fairy-tale lucidity and fluid voice, the poems in this collection weave through the seams between story and fact. Like hemlock, foxglove, and blooming wildflowers, I know something you don’t know is alluring and invariably noxious.

Amy LeBlanc is an MA student in English Literature and creative writing at the University of Calgary and non-fiction editor at filling Station magazine. She is the author of two chapbooks, most recently “Ladybird, Ladybird” published with Anstruther Press (August 2018). Amy’s debut poetry collection, I know something you don’t know, is forthcoming with Gordon Hill Press in Spring 2020. Her short story collection “Homebodies” will be published by Pedlar Press in 2021. Her novella “Unlocking” will be published by the UCalgary Press in their Brave and Brilliant Series in 2022. Her work has appeared or is forthcoming in Room, PRISM International, and the Literary Review of Canada among others.
