Poiema Wins!

On Wednesday, June 17th, at World Vision in Mississauga, The Word Guild presented the Canadian Christian Writing Awards at their annual black-tie Gala. My poetry collection Poiema (Wipf & Stock) was selected as a winner in the "Special" category --- which includes poetry, art and gift books; Duet for Wings and Earth (Sono Nis), by Victoria poet Barbara Colebrook Peace, shared the honour. The judge, Maxine Hancock, a professor at Regent College in Vancouver, gave Poiema a perfect score. For information about other winners at the awards, visit The Word Guild's website.
