Quills was the first print magazine in Canada to publish my work. I had been sending work tentatively and here and there for a year getting to know what this new submission skin feels like. The poem suddenly leaves came out in their Winter 2005 issue with the theme of Ice). It has been a long journey since. So here. Send you best work out.
