September 2022

It’s been a mixed summer, with ‘slow re-entry’ to fall routines after my trip to Sicily. But I did get a kick from having my poem ‘Colour Wheel’ place first in the local Arts Council Ekphrastic poetry contest. A nice ‘warm up’ to the poetry course I am presenting in the fall. More info about my teaching and presentations schedule on my Presentations page.
Contact me if you would like me to present a workshop to your writing group – on Zoom on in person on Vancouver Island or BC’s Lower Mainland.

The page dedicated to SHELTER : HOMELESSNESS IN OUR COMMUNITY now includes excerpts from and links to reviews, links to videos about the book, how to request an in-person or school visit, and other information. Check it out.
