Poetry Reading: Leanne Dunic and Trisia Eddy Woods

Leanne Dunic transgresses genres and form to produce projects such as To Love the Coming End (Book*hug/ Chin Music Press 2017) and The Gift (Book*hug 2019). Her lyric memoir with music, One and Half of You, was published in 2021 by Talonbooks. This spring saw the release of her novel-in-verse-and-photographs, Wet, also with Talonbooks. Leanne is the fiction mentor at Simon Fraser University’s The Writer’s Studio, and the fiction editor at Tahoma Literary Review.

Trisia Eddy Woods grew up spending summers on horseback exploring both Alberta and Manitoba. Her artwork has been exhibited both close to home and internationally, and is held in the special collection of the Herron Art Library. A former editor for Red Nettle Press, Trisia’s writing has appeared in a variety of literary journals and chapbooks across North America including Contemporary Verse 2The Garneau Review, and New American Writing. Currently she lives in Edmonton / amiskwaciywâskahikan with her family, which includes an array of four-legged companions. A Road Map for Finding Wild Horses is her first full-length collection.

I do not think poetry is more, or less, necessary than food, shelter,
health, education, decent working conditions. It is as necessary.
