Congratulations to Naomi Beth Wakan

Nanaimo's inaugural Poet Laureate. 

Here are some of the books published with Naomi's writing:

As well as her extraordinary accomplishment in publishing forty books, Naomi has always supported the achievements among new poets through poetry workshops on Gabriola Island.  Her wisdom and knowledge goes beyond literature, science, healing and peace, and includes that rarest of gifts - inclusive compassion.

Naomi is held in high esteem for these many reasons by all who have the fortune to work with her.
