Creative writing in Manitoba's Interlake.

Germaine Gougeon

Between Every Stimulus and Response…there is a Pause…Within that Pause is the Power of Choice…

Germaine Gougeon is the newly published author of Sensory Overload, the journal she kept while on a month-long photographic safari in Kenya, Africa. It is currently available at Tergesen’s in Gimli and on the shelf and online at McNally Robinson Booksellers in Winnipeg.

Germaine comes from a long line of storytellers and poets and loves being able to count herself as one of them. Gerry spent an active youth in Transcona and raised three adventurous daughters in Anola. Before retirement to Gimli and her immersion into community interests there and in Winnipeg Beach, she worked (as Gerry Brophy) with the public in Beausejour and Winnipeg for the provincial government. Along with her pen, Germaine’s camera has been a lifelong companion in her extensive travels. Her photographs and detailed journals of these adventures are shared with family and friends, who tell her they are a “just like being there” kind of experience.

Germaine was our Featured Writer for December 2013.
