My poems can be found In Canadian magazines including Prairie Fire, Room, Freefall, Arc Poetry Magazine, The Literary Review of Canada, and in chapbooks from Patrick Lane’s master class retreats.
Anthologies with my poems include Walk Myself Home (Caitlin Press, 2011), The Wild Weathers (Leaf Press, 2912), and Poems From Planet Earth (2013).
My three chapbooks include Sliding Towards Equinox (Rubicon Press, 2009), and Those Astonishments Of Sorrow, Of Joy (Leaf Press, 2009). The third, The Gorge: A Cartography Of Sorrows (JackPine Press, 2016), was a collaboration: my poems and paper artist Terry Ann Carter’s book design.
I am grateful for the annual inspiration of Patrick Lane’s retreats and the excellent writing programs at the Banff Centre and Sage Hill. The vibrant poetry community of Victoria’s Planet Earth Poetry provides support and encouragement for emerging and established poets.
