Readings and workshops

I love sharing the joy of words with readers and writers and am always interested in giving readings, taking part in discussions and delivering workshops. Just get in touch if you'd like to talk about any ideas for events.

In 2016, I gave poetry and fiction readings in Yellowknife, Toronto, Saskatoon, Hamilton and Edinburgh. While on my travels, I also delivered a fiction writing workshop, called From Tears to Techniques, in Yellowknife, as a Northwords NWT event.

Thanks to the following wonderful venues and their volunteers: Yellowknife Book Cellar, The Art Bar Poetry Series, the gritLIT festival, the Hamilton Poetry Centre, The Word on the Street and the University of Edinburgh. Thanks, too, to the Government of Yukon Touring Artist Fund that enabled me to give readings all across Canada as well as in the UK in 2014 and 2015.

Book clubs

Get in touch if you'd like me to come to your book club. I can read a short story or some poems and then you can ask me any questions you like (I think).
