Presenting a New Chapbook

Created/written by a group of eleven writers, Where We Reside is a chapbook of poetry.  The group has been gathering almost every other week on Zoom to inspire and support each other.  Last September, after some discussion, they came up with the concepts of “body of work” and “where we reside” to explore via their writing.

The result is a body of work by eleven Sooke poets: Where We Reside – Poems of Time & Place
