We are so pleased to announce that Keith Garebian has been nominated for the 2013 Mississauga Arts Award for Writing for the third time! Keith is a widely published, award-winning critic, biographer, and poet. Among his many awards are the Scarborough Arts Council Poetry Award (2010), the Canadian Authors Association (Niagara Branch) Poetry Award (2009), the Mississauga Arts Award (2000 and 2008), a Dan Sullivan Memorial Poetry Award (2006), the Lakeshore Arts/Scarborough Arts Council Award for Poetry (2003), and an Ontario Poetry Society Award for Haiku (2003).

The winners will be revealed at the MARTYS gala taking place on Thursday, May 9, 2013 at the Living Arts Centre (located at 4141 Living Arts Drive in Mississauga).

Keith has produced 14 books of non-fiction and five of poetry. His new book, Moon on Wild Grasses (Guernica Editions 2012), is haiku poetry with his own illustrations. Moon on Wild Grasses shows the unsuspected scope of a very concise, precise poetic form. Keith Garebian’s haiku encompass a wide range of themes in a vividly elegant style that combines the pictorial with the passionate, erotic or reflective. Nature, empirical experience, the self, love, death, and grief are captured with a perceptive, sensitive eye.
