Andy McGuire

Andy McGuire

Andy McGuire is from Grand Bend and currently resides in Toronto. He is pursuing an MFA in creative writing from the University of Guelph. McGuire’s poems have appeared in Riddle Fence, Hazlitt, and The Walrus. He presents his debut poetry collection, Country Club. A lyrical wilderness of power, wealth, leisure, and desire, the poems of Country Club freewheel across state lines with panache and flagrant feeling. In this bold collection, all passions — even unpleasant ones — stare down the barrel of a world in which freedom is the 51st state, and love is the 11th province.

March 18: Voices of Canada
March 20: The Meaning of Contemporary Poetry

Andy McGuire’s trip is brought to you with the kind support of the Canada Council for the Arts, the Embassy of Canada in Beijing, and the International Festival of Authors, Toronto.
