Marlo Browne

A Barbadian author who has been writing poems since 2009. I can write on any topic, but I prefer to write on issues that we face in our daily lives such as domestic violence, racism, mental health and social injustice, since I believe that the awareness pertaining to these issues, needs to be higher.


Alais Mara

A poet from Vancouver Island who has been writing since she was a child. Although she has branched out into fiction writing, painting and Lino carving, poetry will always be her first love. When she isn’t writing or painting you will find her in the woods listening to scary story’s and photographing mushrooms with her pup Murphy.

Dr. Adam Vincent

Adam is a poet, researcher and educator. He has authored a monograph on poetic inquiry, has a forthcoming edited collection currently in press, and has shared his work through diverse journals. He uses poetry as a way to not only emote and share stories, but to create or unearth layers of meaning. He believes that poetry is a powerful tool for answering questions and making sense of the world.

Niki Leyland-Hall

Niki has been a life long poet – she only just started sharing her poems. In her debut poetry collection Chasing a Runaway Thought Leyland-Hall writes about the highs and lows of life and how to find your strength in between.

Ro Gittens

Born and raised in the Caribbean, moved to canada where the influence of music have assisted in my creation of becoming the artist that I am today. I have released my resent project call homesick which is a call from home and me going back to my roots in finding more of me and why I make music.

Saranjeet Sangha

A social worker as their day job, Saranjeet recently launched a publishing company and plans to publish their own work. They write a lot about non-fiction, introspective, and uplifting words. As a lover of linguistics, they conjoin their art while free versing most of their work.

All skill levels are welcome. See you there!!!!
