Last week my copy of 'Island Tides' finally arrived. It's a lovely anthology featuring many amazing poems from writers all over Vancouver and Vancouver Island. The poems are all themed around the coast, and it is really interesting to read how each poet is influenced by it differently.
I haven't read all of the poems featured yet, but I think I can probably say with confidence there won't be many that are about the dead rising from the sea...
In the future I hope to illustrate the poem, and create a collection of my own. It will feature this, and other spooky short stories and poems that centre around the ocean - my favourite theme. As I create each page I'll post here, so keep coming back to check on my progress.
If you would like to purchase a copy of this or previous anthologies from the Institute, you can email them here and they will send you prices and shipping fees.
