Jannie Edwards

Jannie Edwards has published three collections of poetry and worked on many artistic collaborations, most recently a video and poetry installation, adrift, with visual artist Agnieszka Matejko and videographer Bob Lysay, part of a University of Alberta alumni exhibit. She has been a writing mentor with the Writers Guild of Alberta and Writer in Residence for the Edmonton branch of the Canadian Authors Association. Her collection, Blood Opera: The Raven Tango Poems was adapted for the stage by Mark Henderson of Edmonton’s Theatre Prospero. Jannie is currently working on a community arts project which will see poems sandblasted into sidewalks in The Meadows community. This project follows similar projects in the Collingwood community and on the High Level Bridge.
