Poetry Open Mic
Feb 3 @ 7:00 pm

Born on Vancouver Island, WENDY DONAWA spent three adult decades in Barbados, where she raised her family and worked as a college instructor and museum curator. Returning to Victoria, she respectfully acknowledges that she is lives on the traditional unceded lands of the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations. The BC coast’s salty winds and the Caribbean’s easterly trade winds make equal claim on her imagination and memory. Her poems have appeared widely, in poetry journals, anthologies, chapbooks, and public transport buses! Her first book, Thin Air of the Knowable (Brick Books, 2017), was long-listed for the Raymond Souster Award, and a finalist for the Gerald Lampert Award. Our Bodies’ Unanswered Questions (Frontenac House, 2021) is her second book. Lorna Crozier has called Donawa’s poems “fiery calls to action…in a world rife with inequity and injustice, this…is the kind of beacon we need…unwavering, uncompromising, and fiercely wise”.
