That was then, this is now

Lipstick Press started out as a self-publishing outlet, printing two small books of poems. "You Were There" published in 2006, and "Arcana" published in 2008.

Lipstick is now branching out to publish other poets. The first one coming out this year is "A: The Amelia Poems" written with depth and sensitivity by well known BC poet, Heidi Greco. It is a beautiful exploratory tribute to the "first woman to cross the Atlantic in a plane, first woman to pilot an aircraft across the Pacific, first woman to be awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross."

I'm happy to see you've linked this to the Denman Island Festival page. It's also a good reminder that I need to update my bio!

PS I love the creative combos Google comes up with for their verification words. Tonight's sounds like a great name for a tribe on Survivor.

The Magnificent (a poem for Colten Boushie) by Lesley Strutt

I would like to dedicate this poem to Colten and all those who are grieving for him, who feel lost, frightened, unheard, unseen, excluded...
