Welcome to the online home of Vancouver poet Rob Taylor

Latest News

My second poetry collection, The News, was published by Gaspereau Press in the Fall of 2016.

The book is a series of 36 poems, written during my wife's pregnancy with our first son. You can read a few poems from the book on my "Poems" page.

You can also read a CBC article about the book, and listen to an interview with me, here. You can read a review of the book from the Vancouver Sun here.
