Vickers Janet

Janet Vickers poems have appeared in various Canadian and UK anthologies, literary journals such as The Antigonish Review, Grain and Sub-Terrain, and online in nthposition. In 2002 her poem, You Were There, won the poetry category of the third annual Vancouver International Writers (& Readers) Festival Short Story and Poetry Contest. Her chapbooks ~ You Were There and Arcana were published in 2006 and 2008.

Impermanence (Ekstasis, 2012) is her first book of poems.

Of the book, Robert Martens writes “Where are the measures of impermanance?” asks Janet Vickers in this extraordinary volume of poetry. In Vickers’s world, even the self is a bubble that must constantly be renamed. Her poetry, however, measures impermanence against abiding things: the joys of nature, the struggle against power external and internal, unconditional love. A potent and magical book that swings deftly between tears and laughter.

Janet became a full member of the League of Canadian Poets in 2011.
