Guest Poet

Erin Dingle tells it like it is. Whether it’s sad, silly, science or NSFW, she “takes that confused feeling or idea you’ve never had words for and paints it into poetry you’ll understand.” Erin came second at the Canadian Independent Poetry Slam in 2014 and was part of 5 consecutive Calgary Slam teams. She has spoken at festivals and events across Canada, about issues like cancer, motherhood, mental and emotional health, and sexuality. She is a Type 1 diabetic and a breast cancer survivor.
