Force Field 77

Edited by Susan Musgrave

"Not since Dorothy Livesay’s Women’s Eye: 12 BC Women Poets (AIR Press, 1974) and D’Sonoqua: An Anthology of Women Poets of British Columbia, edited by Ingrid Klassen (Intermedia Press, 1979) has there been an anthology of contemporary BC women poets. So prepare yourself for some jolts from Anima herself when FORCE FIELD hits the planet this spring."

Use of the word "Anima" above got me thinking... 
after journeying from Jung's Anima-Animus theorizing 

this image titled "animaanimus" attracted 

full image & true title: "Man & Woman" by Jurgita Gerlikaite

to Anima Sola

I settled on Stephen Hui's photograph to somehow suggest 
all of BC 
in a single sweep. 

Woman energy, soul, gravitas & force field
self-expression & self-regency

77 creatives linked by gender + genre + geographies
 + language

Paul E Nelson posted a review and recording of the VPL launch on his website:
I found a seat in the back row before all the seats were taken and not long before folks were actually turned away!
