The Tall Lighthouse
Janice Fixter

We are sad to announce the death of Janice Fixter, author of the excellent collection "A Kind of Slow Motion", who passed away on the 24th July 2012. An extremely talented writer and a genuinely open personality, she will be much missed.


a kind of slow motion is her second poetry collection.

a kind of slow motion
walking the hawk OUT OF PRINT


Fixter's deceptively simple work is powerfully attractive...

Janice has a fine ear for the rhythm of line and stanza and the silences that lie between them ...

Her First Flight from a kind of slow motion


Banking away from the ozone,

the sky’s skin, 

smelling of geraniums

and childhood, 

the plane descends slowly

to where the air is thicker 

above the archipelago –

broken slabs of land afloat in the Baltic. 

The summer sun is burning the blueness

out of the sea 

it will balance all night

along the horizon 

ripening cloudberries

and reindeer. 

She will be unable to sleep,

her body adrift in descent 

like a feather preened from the wing

of a snowy owl – 


into unquenchable Arctic light.
