Anne Campbell has, for many years, read from her work, made conference presentations and offered workshops across Canada, in the USA and in England.

In schools, libraries, art galleries, town halls; at book clubs, conferences, and places between – from the Peter Gzowski Invitational as Poet Laureate, in Regina,  to a canal boat and guest of the 200th Anniversary Festival of the Leeds to Liverpool Canal in Lancashire – Anne has enjoyed meeting with people, to entertain, to learn, to explore and to enjoy.

 

“You just feel like you’re in the space Anne writes about.”  “She seems to be writing about what I experience.” 

Anne’s public talks and presentations, honed over years in library and museum service, focus on the arts and a broad view of cultural heritage.  Anne also works in partnerships developing public programs which have included visual art, Jungian psychology, philosophy and multi-faith relations. The programs, question and explore from diverse points of view, promising  audience involvement in topical, insightful and entertaining programming.

“Anne has a knack for public programming that seems to explore the very questions I was thinking of.” 

In workshops: Anne believes words and images — either patiently or in frustration — wait in each person to be brought to life.  In the attentive attitude required for writing, these images, unique to each person can be revealed.  Learning to listen, attend and convey these images in language, participants open to themselves, others, and beyond.

“Anne’s writing instruction gently removes barriers that keep words hidden.”
