Barbara Langhorst

Barbara Langhorst was born and educated in Edmonton, Alberta. She holds a Ph.D. in English from the University of Alberta and teaches at St. Peter’s College, SK, where she has had the pleasure of meeting many of Canada’s finest writers.

Barbara has studied poetry for more than twenty years. Her love of the medium and her particular interest in experimental and avant-garde poetry drew her to become a writer.

In Restless White Fields, Barbara revisits the past and her parents’ violent murder-suicide with startling, unforgettable imagery that rends even as it heals. Her work is unexpected and impossible to ignore.

She and her husband, now empty nesters, share their acreage with a society of pets and the local wildlife. Restless White Fields is her first book of poetry.
