It seems like we’re traveling to Canada a lot this month. Today is no different. You know about Natasha Head and Joanne Marlowe from earlier posts. Now you get to find out a little about Heather Grace Stewart and her poetry!
I’ve had Heather on the blog a few times in the past. Most notably, she was part of an event I had a few years back called Poetry Week. It was like Poetry Month, but in a more condensed form. If you click HERE you can find Heather’s post on print on demand poetry, and read a poem from her collection Carry On Dancing.
Along with that, I’d like to share a little about her collections with you all. And it doesn’t stop there. She also has fiction out, so be sure to give that a look.
