Erica Ens

Erica Ens has long been a fan of language and literature in general and the Writers Festival in particular. She is delighted to be reading the Spanish and Low German translations of some of Di Brandt’s poems at this year’s festival. She learned these two languages in the dusty plains of the San Antonio valley in northern Mexico during her childhood and youth. She lives in Winnipeg, where she teaches English to international students at the Red River College Language Training Centre.
