Nonfiction from Rachel Laverdiere
Inspired by the vast skies of Saskatchewan, Rachel Laverdiere anticipates that calm will erupt into thunderstorms, flocking geese will disappear into the sunset, and northern lights will traipse across the blackened stage. When pastures bloom into bouquets of crocus and sage, she forgets the chaos of a world that spins too quickly and remembers the pleasure of breathing. Published in journals such as The New Quarterly, Filling Station and Blank Spaces, Rachel’s writing often incorporates birds. To learn more about what she’s up to, visit www.rachellaverdiere.com.
