Lynn Davies

Poet Lynn Davies was born in Moncton, NB in 1954, lived during her school years in Newcastle and again in Moncton, and, after travel and post-secondary education outside the province, now resides in Fredericton. Trained as a journalist and displaying an early proclivity to nature writing, she freelanced for travel and outdoor magazines until she began writing poetry in earnest in the early 1990s. Her first collection of poems, The Bridge That Carries the Road (1999), was short-listed for the Governor-General’s and the Gerald Lampert awards, each prestigious. Since that time, she has published two more volumes of poetry, Where Sound Pools (2005) and how the gods pour tea (2013). A meticulous observer with an ambitious imaginative reach, she pushes her work into places that readers find both exciting and fresh.
