This week we welcome back Todd Swift as our guest blogger. Todd was born in Montreal in 1966 and has lived in England since 2003, with his Irish wife Sara. He has edited several anthologies, including 100 Poets Against The War (Salt, UK, 2003) and special sections on new Canadian poetry for New American Writing, The London Magazine, and Jacket, and on young British and Scottish poets, for The Manhattan Review. Swift has seven volumes of poetry, most recently Seaway: New and Selected Poems (2008), Mainstream Love Hotel (2009), and a free-to-download ebook from Argotist, Experimental Sex Hospital (2010). His poems have appeared or are forthcoming in Poetry, Poetry London, Poetry Review, and Best Canadian Poetry 2008. The Chronicle of Higher Education has compared his work to "that of Ezra Pound's in the 10s and 20s of the last century, in Paris and London". He has been Oxfam Great Britain's Poet-in-residence since 2004, and has edited three poetry CDs and a DVD for them. His recent publications include Modern Poets of Canada; An Anthology (co-edited with Evan Jones, Carcanet) the first British anthology of Canadian poetry in over 50 years. Todd is a tutor with the Poetry School (London) and Lecturer in English Literature and Creative Writing at Kingston University, in Kingston-upon-Thames. He blogs over at Eyewear. He is a judge for this year's Gerald Lampert Prize, for best first book by a Canadian poet.
