Upcoming Title: 'WILD HORSES' Poems by Franci Louann

Ten Lines or Fewer - 45 Poems
By Franci Louann
A mini-auto-bio
Edited by Janet Vickers

We are happy to publish Franci Louann's 'Wild Horses' as an eBook. The original was conceived in 2006 as a collection of 250 poems, here we present 45 of those. The selection was made by Janet Vickers, the editor.

The way each poem poises me on the high diving board then walks away so I take the plunge myself—this is poetry as an art. …signing up for your fan band
Sho Wiley, Vancouver BC

Franci’s poems have won prizes from Pandora’s Collective, the Burnaby Writers’ Society and the Surrey International Writers’ Conference. A longer poem won her first prize in the Vancouver Folk Music Festival Memorable Moments contest, up against prose. She was The Canadian Unitarian’s poetry editor for five years. A compulsive 'resourceress' regarding poetry events in Metro Vancouver, she received the World Poetry Volunteer Media Award in 2007. She was World Poetry’s Ambassador to New Zealand and Australia 2009-2010, and their first Peace Ambassador.

Franci has captured here, some of those wild creatures that got away, and we can open any page and run with them awhile.
Janet Vickers, Poetry Editor for The Canadian Unitarian, Gabriola Island BC
