Contemporary Women Poets of the Eastern Townships

E-mail

Hatley Poet Angela Leuck and Louise Abbott of Rural Route Communications are collaborating on a new book--an anthology of work by contemporary women poets of the Eastern Townships of Quebec. The Townshippers' Research and Cultural Foundation as well as the municipality of Canton de Stanstead and the MRC de Memphrémagog have all contributed funding for this exciting project, which is the first of its kind. Louise is creating portraits of the poets for the book and also filming some of the poets as they read their poetry. The anthology will be published by Studio Georgeville and launched in November 2020.

The Ahiarmiut: Out-of-the-Way Dwellers

Rural Route Communications is pleased to announce that Louise Abbott was chosen as one of five Canadian filmmakers for the Tell Our Stories project of Friends of Canadian Broadcasting. Her mini documentary The Ahiarmiut: Out-of-the-Way Dwellers is now online:

Our thanks to all those who contributed to the film and to Friends of Canadian Broadcasting for co-producing it.

Friends of Canadian Broadcasting launched Tell Our Stories out of concern that Canadian stories are in danger of disappearing as Canadian newspapers and broadcasters shut down operations, and more and more people turn to online services like Netflix and Disney+, where Canadian stories are few and far between.

Friends commissioned the five documentaries "to show that there are thousands more Canadian stories out there just waiting to be told."
