Jim Christy Makes the ReLit Shortlist/ Longlist

Cockeyed WorldOn Wednesday, December 24th, the ReLit Awards announced their shortlist/longlist for 2014 and Guernica author Jim Christy made the cut with his latest poetry collection: This Cockeyed World.

The list also includes Love’s Not the Way to by Stan Rogal whose collection, after words, was part of our Fall 2014 line-up.

Jim Christy, a poet and visual artist, has spent his adult life exploring the ways and doings of men, women and other creatures. He has read his poetry and exhibited his art work throughout the world.

In an interview with The Toronto Quarterly, Jim Christy states that “The message [in This Cockeyed World] is that it’s a sad and beautiful world, funny and tragic, too. I’d say that This Cockeyed World celebrates life; it’s a song of life although perhaps in a different key than the usual tune. That’s what I want someone to take away.”
