We Are One ... Poems for the Pandemic
Humbled that my poem Waiting was published in this pandemic anthology, We Are One.

Ulrich, while presumably a newbie to the publishing world, shares pages with an impressive collection of award-winners, poet laureates and a healthy sampling of Calgary’s poetry scene. Contributors include local luminaries such as Sheri-D Wilson and Micheline Maylor, both former Poet Laureates of Calgary; and award winners such as Roberta Rees, Joan Crate, Cecelia Frey, Beth Everest, Weyman Chan and Melnyk himself.
