These poems capture the ways of the great Canadian military brat, vanishing points, flights, and gothic perceptions. Shortlisted for the Robert Kroetsch award for experimental poetry, these poems contain the rhythm of a musician and the eye of a owl. Talent infuses Laurie Fuhr’s first publication.
Laurie Fuhr’s writing has been published in anthologies such as Rogue Stimulus: The Stephen Harper Holiday Anthology for a Prorogued Parliament (Mansfield Press 2010), Leonard Cohen: You’re Our Man (Foundation for Public Poetry Montreal, 2009), and in periodicals in Canada and abroad like THIS Magazine, White Wall Review, Carleton Arts Review, Nod Magazine, Go! Magazine (San Francisco), and Journal of Literature & Aesthetics (India). She used to live in Germany, Cold Lake, Ottawa, and Winnipeg, but has lived in Calgary since 2004, serving as Managing Editor for filling Station Magazine from 2008-2011 and now as a poetry instructor at the Alexandra Writers Centre Society and host of the Single Onion OPEN MIC.

Quartet 2018 Launch in Calgary
Join us for the launch of Quartet 2018 at the new Calgary Library.
Our authors for 2018 are a diverse group whose work variously evokes images of a whirling griot dervish, an Arabic oral ruba'iyat linking climate change and the oppression of women, a military brat at the food of the Rockies, and anthropomorphized creatures that morph into a love song that renders queer lives both vulnerable and endearing.
