We were deeply saddened to receive the news that poet Michael Dennis passed away on December 31st. We were honoured to have published Bad Engine: New and Selected poems in 2017 and a new collection, Low Centre of Gravity, just last June. Besides being a poet, Michael was a generous and avid promoter of other poets. On his blog, Today’s Book of Poetry, he reviewed some 800 books of poetry over the past seven years. He was a mentor, an inspiration, and a friend to many other poets. His contribution to the discourse will be sorely missed.
