get in touch with event ideas

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 2018, so far I've read at the launch of The Northern Review at Yukon College in Whitehorse, Yukon.

In 2017 I read in Dawson City (Westminster Hotel); the Atlin Arts and Music Festival, where I also delivered fiction and poetry workshops; the Whitehorse launch of my book, If There Were Roads; Chrys Salt's Whitehorse reading; Poetry New Westminster; the launch of the Circumpolar Duet exhibition, and at the Vancouver and Whitehorse launches of Refugium: Poems for the Pacific (Caitlin Press).

In 2016, I gave poetry and fiction readings at the Yellowknife Book Cellar in Yellowknife, The Art Bar Poetry Series in Toronto, The Word on the Street in Saskatoon, gritLIT festival in Hamilton with the Hamilton Poetry Centre and at the University of Edinburgh. While on my travels, I also delivered a fiction writing workshop in Yellowknife, as a Northwords NWT event.

Thank you to all the volunteers and venues who hosted me and helped me. Thanks, too, to the Government of Yukon Touring Artist Fund.

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).
