I don’t know much about poetry, except that I can’t write it unless it’s a limerick. And even then, no one wants to hear “The once was a boy named Runt…”
You know who can write poetry? Very well? Edmonton’s own Kasia Gawlak. (You may know her from such events as Words with Friends, which she organizes with fellow writer Jason Norman. You might also know her as one of the outspoken organizers of Edmonton’s Slut Walk. Or even the Edmonton Music Collectors Show.)
So she does other things too. You can find out all about her poetry and her extracurricular activities in this episode. Here’s the breakdown:
