Poet Sharon Irvine Wins Khoui Award

Poet Sharon Irvine

Sharon Irvine is one good poet as many people in Thunder Bay know. On Saturday, May 12, she won the Elizabeth Kouhi award, and well deserved it is. 

The Elizabeth Kouhi Award, named in honour of Thunder Bay poet Elizabeth Kouhi, is awarded each year to a writer whose body of work has a significant history of contributing to the literature of Northwestern Ontario.

Irvine is a writer, teacher and poet whose work has appeared in Core, 807, Squeeze, The Whiskey Jack, and Northern Nurses, as well as Core Samples and Watching the Parade, her first collection of poetry.

Just when
you think you know
all there is to know
about pain,
you lose a child.
That is when you realize
how incomplete
your knowledge is.
poem by Sharon Irvine from her collection Watching the Parade
