The new Art & Words anthology features fiction, poetry, and nonfiction by more than a dozen BC Sunshine Coast writers, along with accompanying artists. Writers and artists were paired at random to collaborate on an exhibited piece: either the writer wrote something inspired by the artist’s creation or vice-versa.
The book contains my poem “The Razor’s Edge,” inspired by Paula O’Brien’s painting “Big Sky Over Lions Bay,” and my creative nonfiction travel essay “Two realities,” about my time in warring Kashmir, India under curfew in 1990.
The book, published by the Sunshine Coast Writers and Editors Society, includes great colour reproductions of original paintings, drawings, and mixed-media art. It’s available on Amazon.ca and Amazon.com.
