As on a Holiday
A questionably conventional biographical sketch might read as follows. Bryan Sentes was born (1964) and raised in Regina, Saskatchewan, where he studied philosophy before moving to Montreal to study English literature and creative writing. He is the recipient of a Canada Council Explorations Grant, multiple Individual Assistance Grants from the Saskatchewan Arts Board, a Villa Waldberta Writers Residency Stipend, and was short listed for the 2019 Gwendolyn MacEwen Poetry Competition. He has worked as an associate editor of Windscript and the as administrative assistant for Grain. His poems have appeared in print and online in periodicals in Canada, Germany, and Hungary. He is the author of a baker’s dozen of chapbooks, the full-length collections Grand Gnostic Central (DC Books, 1998), Ladonian Magnitudes (DC Books, 2006), and March End Prill (Book*hug, 2011), and, in collaboration with artist Juan L. Gomez-Perales and critic Lynn Millette, The Hunger of the Starlings (2004). Translations (with Antoine Malette) from Louis Riel’s Massinahican are forthcoming in Rothenberg’s and Taboada’s hemispheric anthology of the Americas (from origins to present) due out from the University of California Press.
