Just got home from the fantastic Victoria launch for FORCE FIELD: 77 Women Poets of British Columbia, held at Moka House on Hillside – home of Planet Earth Poetry. 

I managed to snap a few pics, which wasn’t easy because the place was packed and I was sitting way in the back. Nearly 20 of us were on hand to read.

Thanks to Mona Fertig, publisher of Mother Tongue Publishing, for having the vision and courage to produce this historic book. More info here:

And here are the 77 women poets included in FORCE FIELD:
