$15.95, 80 pages, paperback, poetry
Forthcoming April 2007

Soft geography is a detailed poetic map and guide to life in Northern British Columbia. Word for word, letter by letter, Gillian Wigmore’s poems adeptly express the region’s landscape, flora and fauna, climate and mindset. It is a rare occasion that such a genuine and honest voice emerges from Canadian poetry; Wigmore’s poems are words to believe in, and words to live by.

“What a wonderful, fresh voice Gillian Wigmore brings to the page. These wise poems know the push and pull within family. They reveal the tender truths behind the rough edges of small-town life. Her voice resonates with authenticity, and whether she is writing about a near drowning or ice fishing, she is ultimately writing about the complications of love. These are poems you will not soon forget.”
—Robert Hilles,
Governor General’s Award-winner for Poetry
