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.
Jennifer Lynn Still composes poems with physicality in the Red River Valley, Treaty 1 territory, Winnipeg. She is the author of several handmade chapbooks and three poetry books, Girlwood (Brick Books, 2011), Comma (Book*hug, 2017) and Saltations (Thistledown, 2005), a meditation on her matrilineal mixed Métis/European heritage. Her current project, an illuminated manuscript composed with pinholes, a light table, electric typewriter and carbon sheets, was projected inside The Star Factory Planetarium (University of Manitoba) and installed at The Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba and Aceart Inc. Her long poem, Legs, is co-winner of the 2021 Malahat Review Long Poem Prize. Legs will appear as a limited-edition chapbook with Baseline Press in fall 2022 and as a video poem collaboration with artists Christine Fellows and Chantel Mierau later this year.
