Numéro Cinq is delighted to announce that Amanda Jernigan’s poem “Aubade” was selected for the 2012 edition of the annual The Best Canadian Poetry in English. The guest editor for this edition is Carmine Starnino. The continuing advisory editor for the whole series is Molly Peacock.

Amanda’s book Groundwork, from which the poem was excerpted, was named one of the top five poetry books of 2011 by NPR.

Congratulations all around but especially to Amanda. NC readers are advised that this is one of those occasions when it is appropriate to raise a glass of Talisker or two or three.
