Poet to visit islands in September

  • Aug. 16, 2004 8:00 a.m.

Submitted by Pat Carrie Smith for the QCI Arts Council–Her poems are lyric, spiritual, and erotic. Many are compelling narratives, and all celebrate the experience of living. Lorna Crozier writes from her impressions of early life on the prairies, travels throughout Canada, and present life on Vancouver Island. She has published many books of poetry and has received many awards for her works, including the Governor-General’s Award in 1992.
Lorna, presently Chair of the Creative Writing Department at the University of Victoria, will visit the islands September 10 and 11, sponsored by the QCI Arts Council. She will give a reading from her works at Hanging by a Fibre in Queen Charlotte Friday evening (the 10th) a “3-hour-on-the-spot” workshop on Saturday afternoon in Sandspit, and a second reading in Sandspit on Saturday evening. The readings are free. The workshop is $50, with a $10 discount for early registration and payment (by August 31st), and an additional $10 discount to arts council members. To encourage car pooling to the Kwuna, a few ferry tickets will be available for drivers. To register or for further info contact Pat Carrie Smith, 637-2312.
