Moon Was a Feather shortlisted for Eileen McTavish Sykes Award
Congratulations to Scott Nolan for his poetry collection Moon Was a Feather being shortlisted for the 2020 Eileen McTavish Sykes Award for Best First Book.
Evolving from a routine of long walks he began to help him quit smoking, Winnipeg singer, songwriter and musician Scott Nolan’s debut poetry collection Moon Was a Feather reflects on a life well-considered. Poems that chronicle a difficult youth, experience with drugs, friendships, and music are interwoven with insights gleaned from the eclectic jumble of neighbourhoods and people he encounters on his long walks. Spare–eloquent with a healthy dose of grit–the poems of Moon Was a Feather are infused with the poet’s deep appreciation for the eccentricities of fate that life throws at him, and the love for music that helps him make sense of them.
