Judith Fitzgerald

Judith Fitzgerald — poet, editor, and cultural commentarian with 30 works (including poetry, biography, anthologies, and children’s books) to her credit — tappy-tips on poetry for The Globe and Mail‘s “In Other Words” and is a contributing reviewer for that newspaper, a regular contributor to The Philadelphia Inquirer‘s Books Pages, and a Poetry Fellow of the Chalmers Arts Foundation. Short-listed for — or recipient of — several major honours including the Fiona Mee Literary-Journalism, Trillium, Governor-General’s Poetry and Writers’ Choice Awards (among others), her last collection, the four-part Adagios Quartet (ten years in the making), appeared 11 November 2007 (Oberon). She rests on it. The ex-Torontonian and freshly minted Official Poet Laureate of The Toronto Star‘s “A Leaf Fan’s Blog” now calls Northern Ontario’s Almaguin Highlands home. The lifelong HABSIGAL no longer writes for a living; rather, she now lives for writing. Visit her WriteSite on the CyberRange here.
