Invite Joanna to your event or book club

Joanna has given readings, talks and workshops at as far afield as Iceland and Alaska as well as in her home town of Whitehorse, Yukon, and online.

Get in touch if you'd like Joanna to join your event online or in person.

Joanna is also available for book club appearances. You can use book club questions to spark discussion about Joanna's poetry book, Endlings, which is all about extinct animals. 

You can borrow Joanna's novel, Worry Stones, as a book club set at the Whitehorse Public Library in Yukon.

It wouldn't happen without them

Joanna is enormously grateful to all the organizers, funders and publishers who create and support events. She also very much appreciates the financial support of the Government of Yukon Touring Artist Fund, the Canada Council for the Arts, the League of Canadian Poets and The Writers' Union of Canada and other funders for all the events she's participated in over the years.
