The Brucedale Press presenting a new collection of poetry

On Valentines Day 2024, The Brucedale Press joyfully announced a new collection of poems by Jennifer Frankum, ‘The Position of My Heart A Love Story Expressed in Poetry’.

Following her previous poetry collections, “Strong in My Skin” and “Dance More Often”, and her picture book for toddlers,“Now That You Are Two” illustrated by local artist Brianne Maas, Frankum’s new collection, ‘The Position of My Heart, A Love Story Expressed in Poetry’, will be released during April, a fitting celebration of Poetry Month.

In lines of whimsy and heart, the writer offers fresh ways of expressing both universal minutiae and unexpected realizations. Tracing the richness of a love story that began with moving of furniture, she explores her roles in family and classrooms with poems ranging from exuberant to quiet and thought-provoking.

An accomplished observer of human foibles, Jennifer is retired from a 29-year teaching career at Saugeen District Senior School (SDSS). She and her husband live in Port Elgin, where she is often seen at a keyboard in the local library, or with pen and notebook in a coffee shop.
