Act Naturally
Profile by Jane Ledwell

I believe anyone can write a poem,” says PEI’s new poet laureate, Dianne Hicks Morrow, emphatically. “I also believe a poem can be about anything… And that for me is the whole point.” She is getting over the initial shock of her appointment to the laureate’s role and is filled with enthusiastic hopes and plans for her three-year term promoting the literary

Come Into My Parlour
Profile by Jane Ledwell

Getting the Pointe
Profile by Jane Ledwell

Nothing is more exciting for a young ballet dancer than going up en pointe—finally dancing on the tips of the toes in elegance and grace. Nothing is more important to achieving this milestone than properly fitted pointe shoes. And no one on Prince Edward Island has fitted more young dancers with shoes than Carol Bellamy of Demi-Pointe dance shop.

The Art of the Organic
Profile by Jane Ledwell

The first time Ron Arvidson saw a potter transforming an unformed lump of clay, the young art student knew it was a “magical” art he wanted to master. After creating pottery professionally more than 40 years, the soft-spoken potter makes modest claims for his magic. “I try to grow from one piece to another,” he says. “One [piece] has to be better than

The Fine Print
Profile by Jane Ledwell

"Photography is a vast subject," says Lionel Stevenson. "There is no discipline, from medicine to astronomy, that doesn't use photography. But fine art photography is not concerned about the things that are recorded so much as the expression."

A Variety of Voices

Lynch, Wade
Seriously Funny

Profile by Jane Ledwell

Twenty years ago this past June, a fresh-faced comedic actor named Wade Lynch first stepped on the Island—“stepped off the ferry, no less,” he says—and stayed. Grinning broadly, throwing his arms wide, he says, “I’ve been embraced by the Island—and I’ve hugged it back.”

In twenty years, not only has Wade had juicy acting roles at the Charlottetown

Jankov, Alanna

The Job for Me
Profile by Jane Ledwell

Many Buzz interviews in the past have included Alanna Jankov. For years, she took the photos that accompanied the artist profiles on this page. Sometimes the interview and the photo shoot overlapped, and I could count on Alanna’s offbeat humour to set interview subjects at ease. One interview subject made sure Alanna was going to be the photographer before
