This month’s featured poet is: Bunny Iskov

Bunny Iskov
I.B. (Bunny) Iskov was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba and moved to Toronto when she was five years old. Bunny married her high school sweetheart, Larry when she was 20 years old, and they have two children. Their son Howie, now 31 years old, suffers from Pervasive Developmental Disorder and Schizophrenia. Their daughter Rachel, now 27 years old, is completing her doctorate in Modern European History in the United States. Howie is an inspiration and the main reason for Bunny's poetry.

Bunny's work was quickly accepted for publication by thirteen branches of The Canadian Mental Health Association as well as other mental health related organizations. In addition to her advocacy work for her son, Bunny went back to school in 1989 and studied English and Creative Writing at York University. She became the Poetry Editor for The Outreach Connection Newspaper, in 1994.

Bunny's poems have been published in a wide variety of newsletters, literary journals, newspapers, and anthologies nation wide. In October, 1999, Bunny founded The Ontario Poetry Society - (TOPS) Ontario's only Provincial, Democratic, Grass Roots, Poetry Friendly Organization. Find out more at:
