Calgary Distinguished Writers Program
My time as the Canadian Writer-in-Residence was extremely fruitful. The residency provided luxurious time to advance several poetry and translation projects, and served as a catalyst for expanding my art practice into sound and performance. I was able to engage and develop projects with various art communities, for which I remain very grateful.
