‘Water Worn” Chapbook launch

Our writers group, in the spirit of staying close to the elements of living in Northwestern B.C.,  decided to choose the theme ‘Water Worn’ for our newest anthology of poetry. Water is ever pervasive in our rainforest. It is the giver of life, feeding our intricate river systems, and nourishing the abundance of vegetation that makes up our home. Water has many expressions. It is at times a constant fluid entity, soft and yielding. On other occasions, water is a torrent or a cold deluge.

Water is an elemental force. It has the power to dissolve, transform, or wear away. Water Worn speaks to the shape shifter, taking one body and changing it into another. It is both the undoing and the putting back together. The mystery of a new entity filled to overflowing with potential.

The poems in this collection speak to these things. They are finely tuned and yet hold a paradox in their entirety. They offer a fullness of expression in a wide variety of forms. Some will leave you soothed and refreshed. Others will evoke another way of being or may challenge your edges. Such is the nature of water. We invite you to open yourself to this flow.
