From Barbados to B.C.
May 29th, 2017
In her first published collection of poetry, Thin Air of the Knowable (Brick $20), Wendy Donawa writes of the physical landscapes of her life – from the prairies to the Caribbean, and finally to the West Coast. Landscape also functions as metaphor to suggest how historical settings play out in the exigencies of lives. Donawa lives in Victoria. She was formerly a museum curator in Barbados. Her poems have appeared in anthologies, magazines and online publications in Canada. She was a finalist in The Malahat Review’s 2013 Open Season competition, and in 2015 she was a runner-up in the Cedric Literary Awards. She has also published two chapbooks. 978-1-77131-460-2
