Diego Bastianutti:

Per un Pugno di Terra
In his third collection, Per un pugno di terra/For a Fistful of Dirt, Diego has not hesitated to offer us the most complete gamma of his lyric to date: together with well-considered themes of exile and the continuous grappling with painfully new lands and milieus, he offers us a more than explicit glimpse of his own incredible trust in the harmony of human existence and in the wisdom that should govern it.

The poetry of Bastianutti represents a literature which could be construed as Italian-Canadian, but which, because of the breadth of its themes and the paucity of any topical references, is poetry tout court, emblematic, more likely, of a pandemic and universal exile shared by all humanity, which dreams the ever more distant garden of its infancy while inhabiting a world all the more disquieting.

David Fraser:

Going to the Well
This is David Fraser's first collection of poetry. Whether writing poetry or short fiction, David examines characters struggling with time and entropy, with relationships and with finding meaning in lives often caught up and stagnant in their own existence, their aging and their loss. Many poems deal with the darkside of the human condition as a political protest to man’s inhumanity to man, and to man’s blatant disregard for our greatest resource, Mother Earth. However within this dark perspective there is tenderness and hope and lyrical imagery of what life wonderfully can be.

"David Fraser looks up, looks around him, takes in his surroundings, and does a good job of reporting on nature as a vital restorative element in our lives." - David Chorlton

"David Fraser's 'Going to the Well' is a remarkable journey filled with a zest for all that life offers. His poems surprise, delight, and enrich the reader. They truly deepen our understanding of the human condition...all in all, this collection represents a most impressive debut." - Vernon Waring

Paul Hartal:

The Kidnapping of the Painter Miro

"An unknown French writer visiting New York is kidnapped by a pair of tough guys who confuse his name with that of the famous Spanish painter, kicking off The Kidnapping of the Painter Miro, or The Butterfly Kite by the artist and poet Paul Hartal (The Brush and the Compass). The endearingly eccentric adventure story moves the reader from New York to Paris, Barcelona and Budapest, and from art to war to UFOs and cybernetics as it ponders the mystery of identity in an unpredictable world". Publishers Weekly, New York

"The Kidnapping of the Painter Miro is nicely written, very interesting and the artwork by the author is fantastic adding a wonderful touch. There is also romance and humor. An enjoyable read". Noel Henry, The Plowman Press, Canada

Dr. Stephen Gill:

Songs Before Shrine

Poetry is a crusade for Stephen Gill to present his vision. The compelling influence for his crusade is the peace that is beauty, creative and that makes life meaningful. He uses poetry also to escape. He feels relieved when he is able to clean the glasses of the self to glimpse a panoramic view of a new island. That is the time when he is able to communicate better with the inner self to give birth to his vision through a process that is a type of spiritual liberation.  

Stephen Gill draws the waters for his inspiration from the   inexhaustible well of his early days in New Delhi. Readers will experience that it is the bitterness of the water that runs in the arteries of the author of Songs Before Shrine.

-Stephen Gill writes concisely, gracefully of commonplace things and contemporary concerns… (

Ruth Y Nott:

Pure and Simple Faith
Pure and Simple Faith by Ruth Nott

Ruth Y. Nott terms her first book "inspirational poetry", an expression of her own creative inspiration as well as her wish to inspire others through it.  Her poems are, as characterized by the book's title, "pure and simple"—so simple, in fact, they have an aura of innocence about them, a childlike wonderment of gentle lyrics like "word-dancing with God." 
The 66-page work allows her faith and love to shine through while also acknowledging the doubts we all sometimes feel.  In her poetry, Ruth emphasizes that, in a world filled with temptation, disappointment and heartache, God's love and support are still available to us all." 

It can be purchased from CreativeWordsPoetry
