The Thing With Feathers takes you on an intimate journey of truth, transformation, and healing of spirit. From cherry blossom tree trunks to the shores of Georgian Bay, these poems evoke reverence, recalling past lives and ancestral Metis blood memory passed down from grandmothers.
Sarah Lewis, Poet Laureate, Peterborough ON

Poetry that’s both affective and effective in recognizing the power of expression as a means of revealing the human spirit. There is clarity of language in these poems, and in that clarity the reader finds what it means to feel alive.
Antony Di Nardo, Poet

Here are poems that “show a way to build belonging.” With clarity and sharp imagery, Outram’s poetry aches with the will to transform. They swirl “beyond the whirlpool of rules” “because it’s all possible.” Slowly, a new self emerges by “breaking down threads / pulled by uncertainty.” Through the deliberate act of seeing, facing, and confronting, a knowing, more integrated self comes to light. A fresh, vivid and heartfelt debut.
Catherine Graham, Poet, Aether: An Out-of-Body Lyric and The Celery Forest
