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.
Polish up your new poems for your 3 minutes of fame at the open mic!
Speaking Crow is a space that values diversity, creativity, and encouragement. Whether you do spoken word or page poetry, whether you’ve published widely or just started writing, we can’t wait to hear your poems.
Alison Calder grew up in Saskatoon and lived in London, Ont., and Vancouver before settling in Winnipeg. Her poetry has won two Manitoba Book Awards and been a finalist for the Gerald Lampert and Pat Lowther Awards. Synaptic, her third collection, moves between neuroscience and fairy tales to look at the nature of looking itself. She teaches Canadian literature and creative writing at the University of Manitoba.
