Ecopoetics

December 16th, 2015

Kelly Shepherd wrote five poetry chapbooks before Shift (Thistledown $17.95), a collection of poems in which he explores human relationships with the natural world including connection, alienation, and the intersections of ecology and industry. The natural world dominates the themes but the poems also reflect the many meanings of the title including a shift in point of view, physically moving or shifting position, and transformation. Shepard is from Smithers, B.C. He lives and teaches in Edmonton, Alberta. His writing has been published in The Goose, Geist, and The Coastal Spectator.
