From House to Town

June 22nd, 2016

A high school English teacher in Gibsons, B.C., Susan Telfer received the Sunshine Coast Arts Council Gillian Lowndes Award for a community artist who has demonstrated long-standing achievement and growth. In 2013 she appeared at the Festival of Written Arts, and won the Vancouver’s Writer’s Festival Poetry Contest that year as well. Her first poetry collection, House Beneath (Hagios Press, 2009), was followed by Ghost Town (Oolichan $17.95) which focuses on the mutability of identity: who we are before and after major life events. The endless recreation of the self stems from the undertow of family dysfunction, ancestral influences, and from grief and loss. 978-0-88982-307-5
