Jackie Raven, In memory
Jackie Raven was a dancer, a lyricist and a poet. She was one of the first members of the Oberon Foundation and the creator of its magazine. Jackie died of breast cancer in 2001 and we celebrate her life by publishing this annual collection of contemporary poetry. We miss her radiance, her wit and her spunk, and we still cherish and are inspired by her poems. The Japanese say: nakutezo hitowa koishi-karireru - with time her absence is felt more." - Ludmila Melchior-Yahil
