Dr. Ian Prattis (National Capital Region) has a new poetry book coming out in the spring of 2022 called Four Poetic Phases: Ignored, Impermanence, Bittersweet, Caring. Each poetic phase encourages different short stories – often colliding in fusion! In addition, Dr. Prattis has a book review from Reader’s Favorite for Past, Present, Future: Stories that Haunt. Dr. Prattis has also won the eLit Awards Environment/Ecology/Nature Silver Medal for his 18th book, Past, Present, Future: Stories that Haunt. The book is available now at Coles at Billings Bridge Plaza, Singing Pebble Books on Main St. opposite St. Paul’s University, Perfect Books at 258a Elgin St, and Books on Beechwood.
