Lansdowne Series: Jan Horner, Ted Landrum, Barb Schott

The Lansdowne is Manitoba's largest poetry prize. 

Aqua Books, in conjunction with the Writers' Collective of Manitoba, is presenting this series celebrating the best in Manitoba poetry. 

This year's winner, Jan Horner, will kick off the series on Wednesday, October 20 at 7:00 p.m.

Jan Horner’s most recent collection, Mama Dada: Songs of the Baroness's Dog won the Aqua Books Lansdowne Prize for Poetry / Prix Lansdowne de poésie at the 2010 Manitoba Book Awards. 
This follows recognition for her second collection, Elizabeth Went West, which was short listed for the McNally Robinson Book of the Year Award, and her first, Recent Mistakes, which won the award. 
Jan’s poems have been published in many literary journals.  She was the University of Western Ontario writer-in-residence in 2001-2002.

Ted Landrum began experimenting with poems to ruffle the implications of architectural musings flirting beyond the veil of lucid tunnel vision.  In 2010, his trio of poems on the problem of architecture were inserted in a collection of academic essays. 

Barbara Schott's work as a fashion stylist in the garment industry frequently takes her to the Orient.  She also edits poetry for Prairie Fire magazine.  She is the author of The Waterlily Pickers and Memoirs of an Almost Expedition

Have a great day.  How can you miss - you're in Winnipeg!
