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.
