Wayne Clifford is the author of seven books of poetry. His most recent collections are The Book of Were and On Abducting the ’Cello, both published by The Porcupine’s Quill. Clifford has published poems in an incredibly broad range of journals – from Canadian Forum to avant-garde magazines like bill bissett’s Blewointment, bpNichol’s ganglia, and Sheila Watson’s White Pelican. He lives in Halifax where the benign seclusion of obscurity is conducive to sonneteering.
