|Unconventional and candid, Marjorie compresses personal experience into a taut and informal poetry that conveys exceptional observations. The Bell You Hardly Hear carries in the tune of its pages, a sounding of truth, from a somewhat fringe perspective. Unveiling the humour, simple beauty, and curiosities that this world offers us, and emphasizing the unnoticed in the cacophony of our busy lives, which allows this ringing to strike us with a profound reverberation of appreciation and reverence for life.
After 13 years of owning and managing her own natural soap business Marjorie Bruhmuller took on writing poetry. She is a part of, and now leads, a writing group that has kept its core members for 20 years. Her latest adventures include writing a mystery novel with a friend and learning to write haiku. Her poems have appeared in over fifty reviews and journals in Canada, the US and Britain. She enjoys life in the Eastern Townships of Quebec, Canada, even in winter. You’ll find her poetry at Tupelo, Orion online, Carte Blanche, Waterstone Review, The Antigonish Review, Room, Event, One Hundred Gourds and Wordless, Haiku Canada 40 years of Haiku.
