April isn’t the cruellest month! And it’s a great time for poetry. Honoured to have run a poetry workshop for the Canadian Authors Association Toronto Branch!


It was such a thrill to participate in Episode #5 of the Words with Writers Podcast from the Canadian Authors Association Toronto Branch and such an honour to be in this fantastic company! Click here to access the podcast: Words with Writers
