Bowering’s writing is enough to renew one’s faith in the simple strength and beauty of well-crafted poems, or even that such writing still exists.

In Soul Mouth, Marilyn Bowering’s first collection in five years, the poet explores the story of childhood and mythology and the development of observation, sexuality and spirituality through their connections not only to personal history but to the animal world and the environment. Monday Magazine said that she "converses with the reader like a brave acquaintance." Marilyn Bowering of Sooke, B.C. has received many awards for her writing (both poetry and fiction) including the Pat Lowther Award, the Dorothy Livesay Prize and several National Magazine awards. Her work has been short-listed for the Governor General’s Award and for international awards including the Dublin Impac Award, the Orange Prize, the Sony Award and the Prix Italia. She was a 2008 Fulbright Scholar at New York University and currently teaches at Vancouver Island University. Her most recent books are Green (poetry, with Exile Editions) and What It Takes to Be Human (novel).
