Grant Park in Prairie Ink Restaurant
Thursday April 28, 8:00 pm
Steven Ross Smith has been creating and performing poetry and sound poetry for over three decades. Fluttertongue 3: Disarray won the 2005 Saskatchewan Books Awards’ Book of the Year Award. He has published twelve books of poetry, fiction and non-fiction, and has performed and been published in England, Holland, Russia, Portugal, USA and Canada. He is currently the Director of Literary Arts at The Banff Centre.
Fluttertongue 5 draws shock, secret smiles and out-loud exclamations from the most stoic of readers. Each poem sits atop a sly and sensuous moss-like footer that unfolds below with wink-and-nudge word play.
Steven will be joined by Winnipeg poet Dennis Cooley. Cooley has lived most of his life on the prairies where, for many years he has taught, edited, and written. He has been an English professor at the University of Manitoba and resides in Winnipeg. He is a founding editor of Turnstone Press.
