Poet's toolbox: just add poetry

Thursday 11 May 2023

11am Pacific time

Rummage in a poet’s toolbox and you’ll be sure to find something useful for your prose. Join poetry and fiction author Joanna Lilley for this craft talk on the indivisible relationship between all writing forms and how you can use poetry techniques to enhance your fiction and nonfiction writing.

Invite Joanna to your event
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. 

Invite Joanna to your book club
Get in touch if you'd like Joanna to join your book club online or Covid-safely in person. You can use book club questions to spark discussion about Joanna's latest poetry book, Endlings, which is all about extinct animals. 

It wouldn't happen without them 
Joanna is enormously grateful to all the event organizers, funders and publishers who worked so hard to move events online during the Covid pandemic. 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.
