We were greatly saddened to learn of the passing of one of our poets, Jeff Steudel, on February 2nd. Son, father, husband, teacher, musician, soccer enthusiast, poet, Jeff touched many around him with his warm and generous demeanour. Jeff’s poetry was published in numerous literary journals, won the Ralph Gustafson Poetry Prize, and was a finalist for the CBC Literary Awards. It was a great honour to publish his sole poetry collection, Foreign Park, in 2015, and we shared in his joy when it was announced as a Finalist for the Dorothy Livesay Poetry Prize (BC and Yukon Book Prizes). We wish we could have had the opportunity to publish more of Jeff’s fine work.
