Weyman Chan

Weyman Chan’s second book, Noise From the Laundry, was a finalist for the 2008 Governor General’s Award for poetry and the Acorn-Plantos People’s Poetry Award. His fifth book of poetry, Human Tissue —-a primer for Not Knowing—- will be released in Spring, 2016. Parlaying the fraught language of techno-jargon and bio-speak, his latest book tries to re-frame the age-old question, “why are we here?” with reference to familial angst, Dr. Frankenstein’s monster, and the ones left holding the bag in Milton’s Paradise Lost.
