Barbara E. Hunt writes everything from poetry through fiction to screen play. Her work has been featured in literary journals, anthologies and magazines [even two writing craft books] across North America as well as CBC Radio One, The Globe and Mail and Homemakers Magazine. She has placed in contests and in 2007 was selected for a Diaspora Dialogues poetry mentorship with Molly Peacock in the City of Toronto, which led to the release of The Patternmaker’s Crumpled Plan (Piquant Press) in 2011. Since she’s dabbled in collaging for several years and always has some creative reno project on the go, her new poetry/colouring book, Devotions (Piquant Press, 2017) combines many of her passions.
As well as her writing and creative work, the many years with The Writers’ Community of Durham Region and the decade organizing the Ontario Writers’ Conference are her heart. She has also been involved with teaching creative writing to seniors through a local municipal program and teens through the Canadian Mental Health Association.
