Speaking Crow is funded and facilitated by the Winnipeg International Writers Festival (WIWF) which is committed to creating safe and respectful opportunities for writers, volunteers, audience members, and workers to share knowledge, explore ideas, and build community.
Dennis Cooley lives in Winnipeg with Diane Cooley. He has decades of experience as a poet, critic, teacher, editor, theorist, anthologist, and mentor. Cooley’s recent titles include The Bestiary and cold press moon (Turnstone), Gibbous Moon and The Muse Sings (At Bay Press). The recently released film Bloody Jack features Cooley’s poems set to music by Michael Matthews. His upcoming title is Body Works.
