Capturing microscopic moments in time and nature, Carla Funk’s poems bring the world
to a momentary standstill. Funk translates vivid description and feeling into her
poems, both testing and playing with traditional poetic form.
Carla Funk was born and raised in Vanderhoof, the geographical centre of B.C.
and one of the earliest Mennonite settlements in the province. Having grown up in
a world of logging trucks, storytellers, ladies’ sewing circles, and rural realism,
she turned to poetry as a place to set down the images of her upbringing.
Carla's newest collection is entitled Apologetic, published
by Turnstone Press.
