Jean Van Loon

“Jean Van Loon has done that rare feat, found the real poetry in history.” – Today’s Book of Poetry
Jean Van Loon’s first poetry collection, Building on River, was on the bestseller list of Books on Beechwood for 2018 and received favourable notice in Artsfile, The Ottawa Citizen, Michael Dennis’s Today’s Book of Poetry, and Catherine Owen’s Crowgirl11. Recent poetry has appeared in Arc, Juniper, and Barren magazines and is forthcoming in the Queen’s Quarterly. Her stories have appeared across Canada and in the Journey Prize anthology. A life-long resident of Ottawa, she often draws inspiration from the city’s history and varied environments— and her three grandchildren.
