REVEALED, a poetry anthology, contains poems written by patients in Alberta hospitals. One of my poems was chosen for this collection. But far more importantly, the anthology is a fundraiser for Artists on the Wards. That’s a fine arts program that runs in Edmonton hospitals and includes art programming by musicians, visual artists and literary artists. There is a great deal of scientific research that supports the healing qualities of the arts, something that those of us in the arts know intuitively. More information about Revealed, and the Artists on the Wards, and to purchase a copy of the book, can be found at http://www.friendsofuah.org/aow. And wouldn’t you love the cover to grace your bookshelves and bedside table?
Some good news today – one of my poems is being published in an anthology, to be released sometime this spring/summer. That’s about all I can say now, but good news has to be shared!!
