- Barbara Langhorst's first novel, described as "funny, crisp, brilliant," is forthcoming with Palimpsest Press in 2018.
Her debut book of poetry, restless white fields (NeWest 2012), won the Saskatchewan Arts Board Poetry Award, the Robert Kroetsch Poetry Book of the Year Award, and was listed as one of the top books of poetry for 2012 on DUSIE. Her poem “Spring Romance” aired on CBC Radio’s SoundXchange, and she was interviewed on CBC’s Blue Sky. The book took her to read from Vancouver to Ottawa.
In her twenty-year career as an instructor, editor, arts worker, and mentor, Langhorst has won three teaching awards. She enjoys working with groups ranging from junior high to seniors, and all ages in between.
