The Fourth World Poetry Canada International Peace Festival Proudly announces the Empowered Award Winners.

We had over 300 nominations come in, some even six months early. We wish we could honour all of you.

Each nominee was nominated by at least two people, in some cases much more. A check was made as to background, good heart,abilities and the quest for peace. The Empowerment awards are based on these qualities.

This year, the age range is from 12-100!

An award will be given to those that can attend during the month of October, for those who cannot come due to Visas or other reasons, a certificate will be sent to you by e-mail. In past festivals, awards were sent out, but most never reached their destinations. If there is a name or country error, please let us  know.

This list will be going on site and when time permits, a brief bio, photo and a poem or writing will be put on site.

The festival is coming together, created by many hours of volunteer work for peace. We are have launched a Crowd Funding site to pay for some of the costs, rather than have it come out of pocket. For more information: Go to  https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/fourth-world-poetry-peace-festival/x/8284778 and join the team to create empowerment and peace!!This is your festival too and the waves of peace coming from it will circle the world!You can also contribute by becoming a peace connector volunteer and helping out in the festival. Contact: ariadnes@uniserve.com or astarte_sita@yahoo.com

All the best to you and keep up the good work. Peace and the world needs you!

SHADOW OF THE LION – BOOKS I AND II TITLES ANNOUNCED!

With the fan base of Alexander the Great themed historical book, SHADOW OF THE LION, counting among its numbers the Consul General of Greece in Vancouver, Ilias Kremmydas, best selling author Steven Pressfield (‘The Legend of Bagger Vance’ and ‘Gates of Fire’) and fellow historical novelists, Scott Oden (‘Men of Bronze’) and John Dempsey (‘Ariadne’s Brother’), all eager to read the work by W. Ruth Kozak, MEDIAARIA CDM are pleased to announced that SHADOW OF THE LION is timetabled to be published in two parts.

Extensively researched in Greece with the support of Classical scholars, the Greek Ministry of Culture, the Society of Macedonian Studies (Thessaloniki), the Finnish Institute in Athens, the Norwegian Institute of Athens and with research undertaken in the Gennadius Library and the British Library, SHADOW OF THE LION will comprise of Book I, titled ‘Blood on the Moon’ and Book II, titled ‘The Fields of Hades’. Mutually agreed by both the author and publisher, it was felt that both these titles possess the quality of conveying (in the words of W. Ruth Kozak) “strong foreshadowing that will draw people into the story.”

Set in the aftermath of the death of Alexander the Great in 323 BC, and against the backdrop of political intrigue, ruthless ambition, racial prejudice, child abuse and exploitation, SHADOW OF THE LION follows the journey of the newly appointed joint-kings, Alexander’s half-brother Philip Arridaios and his infant son, Iskander (Alexander IV) through Asia Minor to Macedon, until the year 310 BC when tragedy marks the end of Alexander’s dynasty.
