Carla Funk, in her fifth book of poetry, illuminates the small and marvelous marginalia of earth, like the glistening trail of a snail en route, and looks prophetically to the not-so-distant future where cities burn and the body falls to ruin.

Carla FunkAbout Carla

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 Gloryland, published by Turnstone Press.
