Originally from Ajax, Ontario, Jeramy Dodds is a poet, translator, editor and a graduate of Trent University and the University of Iceland. Called “a landmark of Canadian poetry,” Dodds’ debut poetry collection Crabwise to the Hounds was a winner of the Trillium Book Award for Poetry and was shortlisted for the Griffin Poetry Prize. His recent translation of The Poetic Edda promises to capture the imagination with his careful attention to the details of these vivid Norse and Icelandic myths.

All are welcome!
