Patrick Woodcock is the author of six books of poetry. He was the poetry editor for the Literary Review of Canada and has had numerous poems published over the last year in countries such as Canada, the U.S., England, India and Colombia. Because travel is so essential to his writing he has lived everywhere from Iceland to Russia, Bosnia and Herzegovina to Oman and Saudi Arabia. He currently lives in the Amazon in Colombia and Oakville, Ontario. Most of the poems in this book were read at The 18th International Poetry Festival of Medellin in July 2008.
