I'm just back from the Whitehorse poetry festival where twenty-four hour sunlight illuminated us all. Many thanks to the organizers and volunteers who made our trip so spectacular. And to the poets with whom I shared the stage, you are brilliant. Read more about the Whitehorse Poetry festival here on the Talonbooks website. xo e

The Saskatchewan Festival of Words is happening July 14-17 in Moosejaw where I lived for for the first year of my life. I'll be there again this July. Please check out the festival lineup here and I hope to see you there.
I had such a lovely time as the University of the Fraser Valley's fourth Writer in Residence. Tomorrow, I meet with John Carroll, UFV's Creative Writing Department Head, for lunch and to say goodbye. If you are curious to know what kind of lovely is happening at UFV, click here to read more.
