Anne Campbell is an award winning Canadian writer, editor and arts advocate. Her works include five collections of poetry; edited works, including Regina’s Secret Spaces: love and lore of local geography, and the extensive Dunlop Art Gallery catalogue, Mind the Gap; as well as anthologized stories, nonfiction and poetry, and musical compositions performed internationally. She is especially interested in the theme of reconciliation: body and language; personal and social, and spiritual and environmental.
“… a woman who has survived, one whose spiritual autobiography contains as many epiphanies of beauty and joy as it does of regrets and failures. Her poetry is about relatedness, the special connections the truly serious, truly authentic poet explores between human beings and the natural world in which they live.”
