Long Reach Home

  Author:   Dianne Hicks Morrow    
  Publisher:  Acorn Press

Reaching back through a family full of stories and characters, from Newfoundland on her mother’s side to New Brunswick on her father’s, the poems in Long Reach Home are characteristically personal, warm, and accessible- by turns humorous, by turns enraged- but always engaged with the world, distilling simple pleasures and fundamental human struggles from everyday experience.

Long Reach Home (Acorn Press, 2002) contains poems that won a Milton Acorn Poetry Award and an Atlantic Writing Competition Poetry Award. Her non-fiction Kindred Spirits: Relationships that Spark the Soul (Acorn Press, 2005) includes interviews with PEI's new premier Wade MacLauchlan and his kindred-spirit partner Duncan McIntosh, as well as interviews with over twenty other Atlantic Canadians who talk about about the kindred spirits in their lives.
