Prairie skies, the rocky rim of the Atlantic, the flatline of the Fraser River Delta, city skylines and the long view of the past – yhis is poetry that lets you see the skyline from somewhere new. Four prominent poets bring their particular viewpoints from across the country:

  • Performance poet and slam champion Rebecca Thomas is Halifax’s poet laureate. She brings her M’ikmaq heritage and a vital young voice to the lookout point.
  • Tim Bowling’s new book, The Duende of Tetherball, links his early experiences growing up in the rich landscapes of B.C.’s Lower Mainland with the challenges and pleasures of getting older.
  • Edmonton’s poet laureate, Pierrette Requier, takes the long view of growing up Francophone in Alberta’s Peace River country and the interplay of languages that shape her life and writing.
  • Local poet Laurie MacFayden’s poetry is described as fearless, charismatic and funny. After 30 years in journalism she is now a full time poet and visual artist.
