About the author

Boyd Warren Chubbs was born in L'Anse Au Clair, Labrador on Bloomsday, 1955 to Una (nee Cribb) and Gordon Victor Chubbs. His poetry and music have been broadcast and featured on both regional and national CBC Radio and Television. He has received numerous private and public commissions for drawings and illuminations. From 1987 to 1990 Boyd was Poet-in-Residence at the former Nova Scotia Teacher's College in Truro. His previous books of poems include Lines from the Migrant Coast (Mokoshan, 1989), Through Solomon's Lane (Mokoshan, 1991), Poems from the Burntwoods (Creative Publishing, 1995), And You, Blessed Healer (Breakwater Books, 1996) and The Birth and Burial Grounds (Breakwater Books, 1999). A play-in-progress, A Day Upon the Wooden Crow, was given two stage-readings by the RCA Theatre Company in St. John's in 1998. His guitar compositions include two recordings, Spanish in the Harbour (1991) and Across Waters and Stones (1998). His three most recent art exhibitions at the Christina Parker Gallery in St. John's, A Land and Sea is Beyond Claim or Discovery (1998), Gifts and Allegories (2000) and I Make A Covenant With My Eyes (2003), were purchased en suite and remain in the province. Boyd lives in St. John's. All work continues and all are one.
