In The Goddess Poems, GP Greenwood explores the myth and magic of feminine reality through studies of goddesses, people, objects, rituals, and moods. Winner of the Bliss Carman Poetry Award in 1979 and the Outlaw Editions International Chapbook Contest in 1999, Greenwood's work has been published in magazines and anthologies across North America. The imagery is sharp and fearless, the subjects diverse, and the insights consistently memorable. Her "quiet observation" provides an excellent reason to stop and marvel at the wonder of the moon, the stars, the kitchen, and an old sports car named Marilyn.
GP (Gail) Greenwood has been widely published in literary journals, most recently in Leaf Garden Press and [Word]: A Journal of Canadian Poetry. Her two previous collections of poetry are Buying Space in the Lifeboat (Childe Thursday Press) and Objects Closer Than They Appear (Outlaw Editions).
