Micheline Maylor’s anthology, Drifting Like a Metaphor, introduces Calgary poets who have the ability to make connections that work to pull together language, image, and emotion. Her criteria was that the poets are not yet published in book form, but are able to make story and voice work to create an emotional reaction through many forms and styles. We hope readers will agree that any of the twelve poets showcased in this anthology could easily become the next great voice or future poet laureate of Calgary.
