“MacLaine’s imagery, both urban and rural, is
remarkable, and no other Canadian poet is quite as capable as MacLaine is
in marrying the formal and the colloquial.”

Former bookseller releases her first book of poetry.

This poetry book by an Island writer is by former P.E.I. bookseller Pam Martin; this is her first book. As a child Pam Martin had four very sudden and unexpected encounters with death. These experiences shaped her emotional life as she struggled to understand them and to find beauty in a world that seemed fraught with peril. The poems also examine, with delicacy and humour, the world she encountered as a teenager, a social worker and a wife.

Poetry 2012

Laurie Brinklow’s long-awaited first collection of poems beaches the reader on the shores of contemporary womanhood. Strewn with memories of the tumultuous journey through childhood to adulthood and the detritus of relationships chanced and abandoned, finally being “here” brings to devotion to daughters and friends and an Island place. Brinklow’s book contains the tidal pull of loss and renewal, departure and arrival that keeps a lover of islands so close to the edges of life and death. That’s the here. But what she is “here” for is both more magical and more pragmatic: the music.

Internet phenomenon Tanya Davis' first book!

Type: 
Poetry 2011

Best-known as a musician and a spoken-word performer, poet Tanya Davis has now taken to the page with At First, Lonely. In this collection, she reflects on life's many passages: falling in love and out, falling in faith and out, the search for personal truth, the search for home. Davis' style is a one-of-a-kind blend of contemporary phrasing and profound personal expression. Her message, though, is universal - over three million people have watched 'How to Be Alone', a film adaptation of her poem created by independent filmmaker Andrea Dorfman.

Poetry that leaps!
Type: 
Poetry 2010

In this debut collection, Sean Wiebe’s compelling narrative lines take us on poetic leaps through childhood into adulthood, as a son and a father. Poetic leaps sprout from and fit beautifully into narrative and context that is heightened and surprising and rambunctious... or undercut or complicate or jar in fine, even ironic, ways — the quirks and quarks that make us say “Eureka! I get it! This is what life is like!”

New poetry from the Island(s)
Type: 
Poetry 2009

The first island, other than literary ones, that called to Deirdre Kessler was Prince Edward Island; she arrived by the Caribou-Wood Islands ferry one warm spring day and stayed. Many of the poems in Afternoon Horses reflect her bond with the landscape at 46̊12'N x 63̊12'W. The second island is Tasmania, where she was writer in residence in Hobart in October 2007. Deirdre is currently working on an adult novel called McDonough's Hornpipe.

Shortlisted for the Prince Edward Island Book Award in 2006

Poetry 2005

Marrying the sensuous and the sensual, Last Tomato is the lush first collection of poetry by Prince Edward Island writer Jane Ledwell. Describing "language moving through the earth where we were born," many of the poems in Last Tomato reflect questions of home and belonging, as connected to the particularity of place. Like Island writers before her, from L. M. Montgomery to Milton Acorn, Ledwell's poems trace the boundaries of her island home to take the measure of both its fullness and its limitations.
