Adam Dickinson

Adam Dickinson’s poetry has appeared in literary journals and anthologies in Canada and internationally. His book The Polymers was a finalist for the Governor General’s Award for Poetry, the Trillium Book Award for Poetry, and the ReLit Award, and his work has been translated into Chinese, Dutch, and Polish. His latest poetry collection, Anatomic (Coach House), is a “chemical autobiography.” With poems that emerged from biomonitoring and microbiome testing on the poet’s own body, it lays bare the relationship between the outside and inside of bodies in our current petroculture. Dickinson teaches poetics and creative writing at Brock University in St. Catharines, ON.
