Wednesday December 30, 2009 Montreal Poet Jeffrey Mackie

Jeffrey Mackie is a Montreal poet. He has been published widely both in Canada and internationally. Most recently he had a piece on display in New Westminster City Hall. His poetry has also been translated in Croatia. His latest collection is 'Truth Among the Obsessions'. He also does a literary feature on CKUT radio in Montreal.

"I write poetry and that is what makes me interesting" Vladimir Mayakovsky.

Before migrating to Montreal, Mackie was a regular on the Vancouver spoken word scene and actually lived for a while as Diane's tenant.  Mackie and Duncan used to hang out together, and near the end of the show S.R. springs a Christmas Christmas anecdote on Diane about one fated holiday the three spent together several years ago.
