Winner of the 2011 Aqua Lansdowne Prize for Poetry.

Ariel Gordon is the 2010 winner of the John Hirsch Award for Most Promising Manitoba Writer.

Hump is a mash-up of pregnancy-and-mothering poems and urban/nature/love poems that functions as an anti-sentiment manifesto from Winnipeg writer Ariel Gordon. Month by month, stanza by stanza, Gordon attempts to adequately represent the wonder and devilment of being-with-child. Hump is a love poem written simultaneously to a father and child, to a lover and the glimmer in his eye, and to a city that is gritty, faded, but still greener-than-most.
