Poetic Pause – An online zoom gathering
with poets Shalan Joudry & Samantha Sternberg
Tuesday, June 2nd, 3:00 pm AST. No admission fee.
Shalan Joudry is a poet, performance artist and oral storyteller. Her first book of poetry, Generations Re-merging, as well as her next collection (set to be released this fall) are published by Gaspereau Press. Her work draws on Mi’kmaw cultural teachings as well as her awe of the natural world. She lives in L’sitkuk (Bear River First Nation) with her partner, two daughters, and many forest critters. Shalan’s work guides us in reconciling between people and cultures, between our minds and hearts, as well as reconnecting with the land.
Samantha Sternberg is a queer poet and librarian living in K’jipuktuk (Halifax). Her poetry has appeared in The Malahat Review, Prairie Fire, Room and elsewhere. Her chapbook, Kinship and Light: the Wyeth Poems, was published by Greenboathouse Press in 2018.
This is a time to honour pause and silence. There will be room to share your own reflections, thoughts, how you are doing.
