Canada's 150 Year Anniversary

About the Author

Canadian poet Emily Isaacson, lends her verse of growing up on Vancouver Island, and once wrote in a tree.  She was first published at age thirteen for her poem, "The Wild Madonna". She has now published eleven books of poetry, as well as a novel, photography, and a children's book. She was studied last year by McMaster University as one of Canada's authors. 

Isaacson is the director of the Wild Lily Institute in Mission, British Columbia. Isaacson has trained in creative writing and restorative justice. She inspires her readers in skills of conflict resolution, circle keeping, and healing through forgiveness. Her themes include the sea, healing, forgiveness, and reparation.

Isaacson has written and published over 1532 poems, polished like gemstones. Her prolific verse and multi-media art bring poetry to life. She has created 50 videos of her poetry, as well as blogs and websites. This year she is also published in a new anthology called O Canada: Celebrating 150 Years by the Fraser Valley Poets Society, where she is on the board of directors.
