Doyali Islam’s second poetry book is heft (McClelland & Stewart, 2019). Described by the poet as a “ledger of tenderness, survival, and risk,” this hot-off-the-presses collection investigates rupture and resilience through both form and content. A Toronto-based poet, Doyali’s work has been published in Kenyon Review Online and Best Canadian Poetry. In 2017, she was a guest on CBC Radio’s The Sunday Edition, and she and poet Forrest Gander were recently deep in conversation in The Adroit Journal . You may recognize Doyali by her cat-print dress or know her as Arc Poetry Magazine’s very own Poetry Editor!
