Ted Landrum is a poet, critic, teacher, and artist, with extensive architectural and teaching experience in the US and Canada. He began writing poetry while studying architecture at Ball State University in Indiana and sustained the poetry habit while working in architecture in New York City, influenced by the jazz, theatre, and tumult of that city. His debut poetry collection, Midway Radicals & Archi-Poems (Signature), is a provocative foray into experimental poetry which explores the fertile gaps and overlaps between the architecture of poetry and poetry of architecture. Having lived in nearly a dozen cities, he now resides in Winnipeg, where he teaches architecture at the University of Manitoba.
