I’m Yolanda Duque Vidal, 72 years old. I live in Montreal, original from Chile. I’m a Canadian citizen.
I am an author, professional poet; editor and publisher, I have 10 books with my poems auto-published, some of them in Spanish, French, English and Italian.
Two Awards for the best poetry: one in Equator and other in Florida, USA.
I participate in several international poetry festivals, like V Festival of poetry Trois Rivières, VI Festival de Literature Metropolis Blue in Montreal and other festivals in Rumania, Italy, France, Mexico, Equator and Puerto Rico. I read my poems to the students in the primary, secondary schools and Universities in all those countries, even here in Ottawa University and Concordia University in Montreal.
Like a publisher I edited two Anthologies with 60 authors, with poems and short stories. All financed by the authors and me.
The only little help I have is my time from my retirement and the little cheque from Access copy right one time a year. I have two other in edits books because I don’t have the money to pay the printing.
Maybe someday it will be possible
That's my little story: the story of a woman who love poetry and participate with the new generations with my poems and short stories.
