The Victory Park Poets are a core group of young experimental artists from Sudbury Ontario who took the opportunity to incorporate different forms of writing and poetry into their lives, and share with others their thoughts, emotions and experiences that linger in their Northern Ontario hearts.
The formation of the "Victory Park Poets" collective was made possible through all of those who have continued to support and participate actively in grassroots collectivity and creation together in our communities.
The moving process leading up to the creation of this book brought together a community, collectively explored the theme, "Transitions", built strong relationships, strengthened our community and helped bring out a collective vision for our better common futures.
Great appreciation for this poetic work goes to all of those who made time and space for your greatly valued contributions towards this exploratory bookwork. A warm and wonderful thank you to all of the 'Victory Park Poets' artists in this book, Deanna Nebenionquit, Tanya Ball, Winnie Pitawanakwat, Sonja Dunn and Paul Dunn for sharing your inspiring methods, teachings, stories and life experiences that helped shape and guide this collective creation.
Thank you to the Canadian League of Poets and the Ontario Trillium Foundation for all of your wonderful help and support in offering Myths and Mirrors Community Arts the opportunity to bring together this inspiring group of young people in Sudbury, Ontario.
