Review of the weather from the west

Writer, poet, and Northwest Community College instructor Sheila Peters has released a new collection of poetry entitled the weather from the west. This is Peters’ third book, following the publication of Canyon Creek: A Script in 1998, and Tending The Remnant Damage, a collection of short stories, in 2001.
“I’ve been writing poetry and giving readings for many years now, and while individual poems have been published in various journals and other venues, it feels great to see a group of them all together, keeping each other company between the covers of my favourite technology—a book!”

Developed in collaboration with local visual artist Perry Rath, the weather from the west is a combination of 42 poems expressing Peters’ diverse experiences both near and far, and 23 paintings of Rath’s visual reflection, interpretation and vision.

Northword is pleased to present here a small sampling of this new, northern book.
