Kate Marshall Flaherty
Kate Marshall Flaherty is grateful to add Where We Are Going to her other books of poetry, Hobbeldehoy, String of Mysteries and Tilted Equilibrium. Her poems have been published in journals such as CV2, The Windsor Review, Quills, Ascent Aspirations, Other Voices, and Freefall, as well as in several Canadian and international poetry anthologies. She was short-listed for Descant’s Best Canadian Poem and for Nimrod’s Pablo Neruda Poetry Prize. She recently first place in THIS Magazine’s Great Canadian Literary Hunt and she also received honorable mention in CV2’s 48-hour poetry contest and the GritLIT 2009 Literary Awards. For the last three years, Kate has participated in the annual National Random Acts of Poetry, where she “poemed” unsuspecting people in hospitals, cafes, parks, libraries, and on the street. She lives with her family in Toronto where she teaches yoga and guides teen retreats on the Golden Rule. Poetry is her life-line.
