lunch poems 2019

Lunch Poems at SFU connects the city with poets – it’s a great place to bring your lunch and your questions about poetry. There’s always a Q & A after the reading.

The light in the Teck Gallery at SFU’s Vancouver Campus is beautiful, the vibe is friendly and relaxed.

And we always end on time.

This month’s poets: Fiona Tinwei Lam and Evelyn Lau.

A Word or Two About Health: Words as Medicine

A Word or Two About Health: Words as Medicine

This coming Friday I will be part of a fascinating event that includes poets Sarah de LeeuwStephen Collis, Hiromi Goto, Fiona Tinwei Lam, Karen Shklanka, and Mark Winston for a talk on writing and trauma at Creating Space: New Directions and Critical Perspectives, a medical conference:

“Poets will offer personal and creative thoughts, anchored in their work in and practice of poetry, about the importance and potential of art to medicine and relationships between creative writing, medical education, healthcare, poetry, and self-care or care-of-others. They will speak to the intersections between the training trajectories in health professions education and the importance and capacity of arts & performance in cultivating well-being during those intense times of learning.”

I hope to add a few more notes about my presentation at a later date…
