poetry and prose about place

update – ‘within easy reach’

with 5 comments

This past weekend, I attended the Writers’ Federation of New Brunswick WordSpring event. This is an annual celebration for writers in new Brunswick and includes readings and workshops. On Friday evening, I participated in the book sale and readings for my poetry book within easy reach. My publishers (Chapel Street Editions) came all the way from Woodstock to attend the sale and signing. Showing my book to the people at the event and signing books was a wonderful experience! The other author at my table was Edith Miller who has just published a book of poetry, Crow Impressions & Other Poems, also by Chapel Street Editions.

The painting on the table beside me is ‘berries and brambles’, the second I have painted to celebrate my book. Anyone who purchases a book from the publisher will be entered in a draw to win this painting. Blogging friends who buy the book from my publisher have a chance to win the cover art for the book, the painting entitled ‘brambles’. They will also be entered for the draw to win the second painting ‘berries and brambles’.  That’s right, two paintings to be won!


This is also a reminder that the draw to win ‘brambles’, cover art for the book, ends June 7, 2016. To enter the draw for ‘brambles’ (and be entered in the draw for the second painting ‘berries and brambles’), purchase a book from my publisher ( ) and leave a comment on my blog. See the post for May 25, 2016 for more information


I am busy, practicing for my reading this evening at 6:30 at the L.P. Fisher Library in Woodstock, New Brunswick. Wish you could be there!

  1. Congratulations, Jane – on publishing your book of poetry and on your courage to sit at a table behind your work. I always find getting on display with my books the hardest part of writing – hands down. Good for you!

    • Hi Fran. I love to talk … at most meetings you can’t shut me up! So sitting at a table and having people to talk to about my book … no problem! One on one, though, it has been difficult to sell my book. I am not much good at salesmanship. My son makes his living that way! Bu the way, I am still planning to purchase and read Maelstrom, just need a break in all the action! Jane

  2. I want a painting: there, that’s a second post within easy reach of the roving eyes that scan your blog. Nice photo of the table, Jane. Some interesting people chatting around you. Glad it went well.
