For Liam Coady, artistry – like life itself – is about bringing forces together and making meaningful connections. Liam’s own ability to bring together the physicality, intelligence and expansiveness of stage acting with the candour, potency and directness of poetry has made him a beloved local performer, and a spoken word poet of uncommon national distinction. A national team poetry slam champion and former finalist of the Canadian Individual Poetry Slam, he has been a featured performer at festivals and showcases throughout the country. Liam’s best work combines this underlying sense of goodness with a distinct creative sensibility. His newest work, This Love Is Mad Reciprocal, was recently published by Glass Buffalo and is available for purchase.
