Lorna Crozier

Lorna Crozier was born in Swift Current SK, and though she has lived for many years on the west coast, the prairie continues to define her work. Since the mid-1970s, she has written fifteen acclaimed poetry collections, including Apocrypha of Light and Inventing the Hawk, winner of the Governor-General’s Award. She is also an accomplished essayist and editor, and published a memoir, Small Beneath the Sky: A Prairie Memoir. Margaret Laurence called her “a poet to be grateful for” and her new collection, The Book of Marvels: A Compendium of Everyday Things (D&M) bears that out. Crozier lives in Victoria BC.
