G. Maria Hindmarch
G. MARIA HINDMARCH is a prose writer who loves poets and poetry because she has always been drawn to sound, speech rhythm, and precise language. She attended both the Vancouver Poetry Conference (1963) and the Berkeley Poetry Conference (1965) which laid the ground for poetics to come. In 1996, the visual artist Judith Williams asked her to write 250 words with short lines for an installation on the main floor of the Vancouver Art Gallery. Her piece in this review is developed from some of the lines from there. Wanting Everything, her collected works, is forthcoming from Talonbooks in Spring 2020. It includes not only several unpublished short pieces, letters, interviews, and selections from audio tapes, but also her three books which are hard to get and out of print: The Peter Stories, A Birth Account (two pregnancies one birth), and The Watery Part of the World (twenty stories based on her year working on a west coast freighter between her BA and MA).
