2006 Short Lister Cadence Weapon – Edmonton's Poet Laureate
Cadence Weapon can add poet laureate to a list of honours that includes making the Polaris Short List in 2006 and Long List in 2008. Couldn’t have happened to a nicer fella. He also helped us unveil our 2007 Short List on very short notice. He has been named Edmonton’s new Poet Laureate. Rhyme pays! Congrats Rollie.
