One of our upcoming authors, Margo LaPierre recently did a reading of her poetry through the Tree Reading Series. LaPierre read from her debut poetry collection Braille Tattoo, forthcoming from Guernica Editions. The Tree Reading Series takes place in Ottawa and is one of Canada’s longest-running literary events. Tree provides a venue for established and emerging writers to present their work and to interact with other writers.
Margo LaPierre also chatted with Pearl Pirie for the program “Literary Landscape” on the radio station CKCU FM. LaPierre discussed the creative process, feeling inspired, and how much she loves editing her own poetry.
Margo LaPierre is a poet and artist currently living in Ottawa. She attended Ryerson University, where she completed her BA in Philosophy. Her writing is connected to Canadian urban themes, and focuses on the way that language and physical space structure human experience. Her poems have been published in Bywords Literary Quarterly, The Feathertale Review, the Antigonish Review, Echolocation, The Claremont Review, and in EAT IT: A Literary Cookbook of Food, Sex and Feminism.
