about

The poems in The Landing, Sinnett's first collection, reflect on a life divided in two by a move from England to Canada.

Mark Sinnett was born in Oxford, England and moved to Canada in 1980. He studied film at Queen's University, tended a few bars, and is now working on a novel."

Editorial Reviews
