Poetry Editor

Adelia (Nicola) MacWilliam recently completed her MFA in poetry at the University of Victoria working with Homer Award winning poet Tim Lilburn. She learned that if you cast the mythic imagination across a piece of land that has always been part of your life, everything will out. She is co-founder of Cascadia Poetics Lab in Cumberland (in Comox Valley), which produces the bi-annual Cascadia Poetry Festival, a poetry retreat for mid-career poets in the off years, and the monthly Red Tree reading series. She spends her time between Cumberland and Desolation Sound.
