The Poetry & Performance workshop, led by Darlene L. Witte, works to bridge the gap between poetic words on a page and poetry read aloud.
Montreal-born, Edmonton-based poet Kathy Fisher has been performing her words for international audiences for over three decades. Her passion is marrying sonic elements in poetry with improvisational music or ‘found sound’ – be they recordings of northern lights, tracks from her oral history sound library, or arias from rediscovered opera divas. She recently served as mentor in the Writer’s Guild of Alberta Borderlines program and is currently excavating and re-writing her LL.M. thesis as creative non-fiction.
