Carolyn Pogue

Imagination * Passion * Creative Flair

Carolyn Pogue is a Canadian author, editor and workshop presenter. She lives in Calgary, Alberta which is Treaty 7 Territory and Metis Region 3. Her titles include books for teachers, children, adults and teens.

Her Young Adult historical novels, Gwen and the sequel, West Wind Calling were inspired by the life of E. Pauline Johnson/Tekahion-Wake, and her own grandmother, a British Home Child. Gwen was short listed for the City of Calgary Book Prize. West Wind Calling was selected as a Best Book for Kids and Teens by The Canadian Children’s Book Centre.

Carolyn has travelled to many countries of the world and is inspired by peacemakers and justice-seekers of all ages. She lived in Ontario, Quebec and Northwest Territories/Denendeh before settling in Alberta.

Carolyn enjoys camping, reading, playing around with paint, fabric, wood, paper and working with writers of all ages. With her husband, Bill Phipps, she serves on Raffi’s Child Honouring Advisory Council.

Story Medicine for the Soul

Story Medicine for the Soul is an umbrella under which the magic and mystery of stories is sheltered and allowed to flourish. As a Retreat Facilitator, Soul Companion, Writing Workshop Facilitator, Artist-at-Play and Writer, Carolyn is always amazed at how stories change lives.

Carolyn is also interested in stories which manifest through intuitive expressive arts. She has written several short dramas which have been presented in conference and retreat settings, sometimes as Readers’ Theatres. She has also worked with puppets, dolls, fabric, and found objects, particularly bird skulls.

In 2020, Carolyn began telling family stories under The Story Tree via Youtube. They can be found on the Video page. For even more fun, she and Bill Phipps began creating videos about The Old People (exercising, downsizing, camping, fun). The latest is Protesting with Old People.

Carolyn has written plays such as Common Women, and she has contributed to several anthologies, including the literary anthology Writing Menopause, edited by Jane Cawthorne and E.D.Morin and The War Memory Project, edited by Ali Bryan, Vivian Hansen and Robin van Eck.

Carolyn is available to work with individuals or with groups. Simply contact her to discuss your workshop or retreat ideas, or to arrange an appointment for individual work. Rates are flexible.
