poetry by Candice James
"Skyheart" by Candice James The Arts and Entertainment Magazine - Dec 19, 2011 "In Midnight Embers, Candice burns the essence of love's sweet perfume onto our souls to reveal its burnt offerings."
Candice James is the Poet Laureate for The City of New Westminster. Her first book of poetry, "A Split In The Water" was published in 1979 by Fiddlehead Poetry Books. It was a collection of surrealistic free verse poems characterized by vivid imagery. The late Fred Cogswell, a poet and recipient of the Order of Canada Medal was her mentor and encouraged her to continue writing poetry stating "she had the gift". However, music called to Candice and she spent the next 30 years as a singer/songwriter and bass player performing and touring. In 2010 she hung up her bass guitar and the band and dove back into poetry and became a familiar figure on the local literary scene. Her second book of poetry "Inner Heart - A Journey" was published in 2010 by Silver Bow Publishing. Her poems have appeared in numerous international anthologies, magazines, .newspapers and e-zines. Candice is a full member of the League of Canadian Poets, and the Federation of British Columbia Writers. She has been the featured poet at many local poetry events and on local radio shows and is the creator of the following ongoing poetry events: "Slam Central Spoken Word", "Poetic Justice", and "Poetry In The Park".
More on Candice James
"Candice James is a poet with many facets to her poetry. In this book of sonnets she takes us on a journey through the agonies and ecstasies of love and then with the flow of her pen leads us seamlessly to the darker underside of the human psyche.
In Midnight Embers, Candice burns the essence of love's sweet perfume onto our souls to reveal its burnt offerings. Each sonnet is a true masterpiece of form. I found parts of myself deep within her words as she writes from that place in the heart we have all visited on those long lonely nights."

New Westminster, BC- New Westminster City Council has appointed local poet Candice James to a second term (2013-2016) as the City's Poet Laureate. James has served as Poet Laureate since 2010.
"It is truly an honour to be the Poet Laureate for New Westminster," said James.

She created "Poetic Justice", a weekly poetry reading series, "Slam Central", a monthly spoken word performance poetry event, and "Poetry in the Park", a weekly summer event that runs each year in July and August.
In an aim to put the spotlight on local talent, James gathered works from local poets and facilitated the publishing of a poetry book, "Royal City Poets Anthology" (Silver Bow Publishing, 2011) which is available to borrow from the New Westminster Public Library and available for purchase online. She is currently working on "Royal City Poets Anthology 2" which is to be launched in October 2012.
