Kyla Jamieson

Kyla Jamieson is a poet and educator whose advocacy and passion for accessibility is rooted in her experience of a brain injury and dynamic, invisible disability. Her first book, Body Count, was a CBC Best Poetry Book of the Year in 2020. She has collaborated with other disabled writers and publishers as a writer, editor, and mentor, and organized the Rest Days Reading Series, a restful virtual reading series starring disabled poets from across Turtle Island. Raised in Squamish, BC, Kyla learned to whitewater kayak at the age of eight and still spends as much time at the river as possible.
