Pierrette Requier

Pierrette Requier

Pierrette Requier Edmonton’s 6th poet laureate (2015-2017) is a bilingual poet and playwright, (French English) an arts advocate, and a mentor. She has presented at festivals across Canada. Pierrette enjoys translating, collaborating across artstic disciplines as well as cross-generationally. She is interested in finding ways to create space for the actual multi-lingual literary wealth of Canadians, more specifically poets residing in the west, to emerge and be heard. Through her long term, sheer love of poetry, she has come to realize that it is an inexaustible resource, and is always ready to hear versions of : “Your voice here.”
