2024  ... a brand new year, lots of news ... 

I am working on edits for an upcoming collection of poems to be published by Moonstone Press in Philadelphia.  The collection is called In My Father's House.  

 

I am also working on a collaboration of poems in English and Spanish ... details soon.


I have been been invited to read at the Poetry Summit in New Mexico, September 13-15, as part of Tesoro, a collaboration of women poets.   And I am touched that poets I know well thanks to the online communities are arranging opportunities once I am down there.   So far, there are reading dates in Albuquerque, Silver City, Taos, and Placitas between September 4 and September 21, and I may also be giving a workshop on Nature Poetry.  Stay tuned for more news!

I was asked to return as part of Les Voix de la Poésie / Poetry in Voice again this March.  I enjoyed helping last year and look forward to being involved in this initiative again.

I am thrilled to be back in the classroom as the Poetry Artist in Residence in February.

Also, related to my 30+ career as a teacher in French Immersion, I am serving as an Advisor for the francophone student-teachers doing their practicums in Calgary.

It is with a mixture of sadness and reverence that I will take part in a memorial reading for Calgary poet Bob Canuel this May.  He passed away in November of 2023.

I was honoured to be asked to contribute a new poem to the Brownstone anthology.  Everafter will be included in this year's collection.  In addition, I was asked to feature at the Brownstone readings in October of this year.

Dr. Michael Anthony Ingram has asked me to participate in a special zoom reading later this year on the topic of Caregiving.

I will be participating again at When Words Collide, a writers' conference which will now be organized and hosted by the Alexandra Writers' Society Center, August 14 to 20.

And this, from Nepal.  I submitted Dinosaur Dreams, and am awaiting the arrival of my copy.

Dear poet, 

I send you warm New Year greetings from Kathmandu, Nepal. 

I also take this opportunity to thank you once again for your participation in the Madness anthology that features 297 poets from 101 countries/territories.
