Dave Pritchett is a poet born and razed in Vancouver, Canada. Started working the docks in 1968. Wrote his first book of poetry “Blue North Yellow North Rising” in Prince Rupert in 1968.
Believes poetry can tell the truth about our precarious existence. Has chapbooks spread around various nooks and crannies. “Out of the Missed” resides at the Vancouver Main Library. Early member of the Literary Storefront. Travelled on the D.O.A punk bus, as a Black Wedge poet to L.A. and venues between and made it back…although doubtful at times. Walked the streets of Dublin, Enniscorthy, Galway, Cork, narrow hedged roads of Dingle and Havana, in search of history, family, photographs, paintings, a thousand words, his heart and yours.
