|Katerina Fretwell’s ninth poetry and art collection, We Are Malala (Inanna)will be out Spring 2019. Her eighth, Dancing on a Pin, was long-listed for The League of Canadian Poets’ Lowther Prize, was performed in International Authors Association’s Battle of the Bard. Pendas Productions has published two of Katerina’s poetry books, with accompanying CD.
Susan McMaster’s new book Haunt investigates “the world entire, with all its mystery, heartbreak, and magic” (Carolyn Smart) in warm, conversational poetry that speaks to a wide range of readers with “rhythm and verve” (Jan Conn). Her publications include some 30 books, magazines, anthologies, and recordings. She’s a past president of the League of Canadian Poets.
Susan McCaslin is a BC poet who has published fifteen volumes of poetry, including her most recent, Into the Open: Poems New and Selected (Inanna, 2017). Susan resides in Fort Langley, where she initiated the Han Shan Poetry Project as part of a successful campaign to protect an endangered rainforest along the Fraser River.
Poet, performer and playwright Penn Kemp has been lauded as a “one-woman literary industry” since her first Coach House publication (1972). She edited Canada’s first anthology of women’s writing, IS 14 (1973) as well as two recent anthologies, Women and Multimedia and Performing Women. New books of poetry are Local Heroes (Insomniac Press), and Fox Haunts (Aeolus House, Fall 2018).
