Sue's latest collection of poems is Almost Beauty: New and Selected Poems (Goose Lane Editions, 2022). Her previous collection, Heaven's Thieves (Brick Books), won the 2017 Pat Lowther Award for the best book of poetry by a Canadian woman. She has written four other collections, all of which have been nominated for awards including the Gerald Lampert Award, the Pat Lowther Award, the Acorn-Plantos People's Poetry Prize and the Atlantic Poetry Prize (twice). The Drunken Lovely Bird won the American Independent Publisher’s Poetry Prize and Mortal Arguments was a Globe and Mail “Top 100” book. Sue has also published fiction, and was nominated for the Chapters/Robertson Davies first novel award. In 2014 Sue was the inaugural critic-in-residence for CWILA (Canadian Women in the Literary Arts).

Academically, Sue is interested in aesthetics and ethics, theories of beauty, ecopoetics, the intersection of literature and philosophy, and contemporary poetry. Sue also works as a poetry editor for Brick Books.
