I've been battling with white space and have been pushing against it. I've juggled words, stanzas and concepts.

As I progress through the work/play of abstracting word & image I am working on a new chapbook with the working title "abstracted".  It's still in development as I juggle other projects - personal, voluntary and professional.

Read my blog for updates and follow me on Facebook and Instagram.

A beautiful project that sustained me through the winter of the pandemic, a group chapbook of poetry. The idea was hatched when my poetry feedback group decided we needed a project. The project acted like a target/focus for our writing. We worked and met every two weeks via Zoom for several months. The result: All the Elements - Seven Poets from Sooke.
