Richard is from Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec. His enjoyment of the woods combined with contemporary issues form the basis of his writing. Richard is now concentrating on his poetry, which he believes is like a global adventure in a land without borders. His background as a miner, welfare officer, supply teacher, newspaper reporter, and a further 22 years in social services provide him with ample article material.
Richard has work in print and online with literary magazines such as Inscribed, Hudson View, Short Story Library, Ottawa Arts Review, Paragon 111, Tower Poetry, Caduceus, The Danforth Review, Other Voices International, Rubicon Publishing, Writer's Block, The Foliate Oak, Parenting Express, The Penwood Review, and Blue Skies Poetry.
Note: Richard L. Provencher will be 80 on September 10, 2022, lives with his precious wife, Esther to whom he married 47 years ago, and continues to joyfully write all types of poetry, and posts his work now, all of it on ABCtales.com; some experimental. They have lived in lovely Truro, Nova Scotia for the past 36 years. Richard & Esther have a very strong Christian faith. Bless each one of you who enjoy all of our writing, and although did not make much money are glad to share our work.
