Discover: Dona Sturmanis
An award-winning poet, journalist, and feature writer - but above and beyond her own stellar writing career, Dona Sturmanis was a mentor for more writers than I can count - myself included.
Very much dismayed to read this morning that she had passed away, but her son Leif, a chip off the old block to say the least, wrote a magnificent post on Facebook for her world of friends, family and fans.
I can honestly say that I would not be where I am today without having met Dona. She was the creative spark that continues to burn to this day...
I'm flying out the door to work, but here's a link to a piece that I posted from a reading she organized - I think at Lois Lane in Kelowna.
Don't let God overwhelm you with assignments Dona....relax a bit now.
