Carolyn Marie Souaid

Carolyn Marie Souaid is a freelance book reviewer and
the author of four collections of poetry. She has
appeared at many literary festivals across Canada, and
was part of a Canadian delegation of poets invited to
Paris last December to participate in a four-day forum
on the inhumane treatment of prisoners of conscience
in Turkey.

Since 2004, she has become involved in projects aimed
at moving poetry off the page and into public spaces.
She co-produced two major Montreal events: POÉSIE EN
MOUVEMENT (the poetry-on-the-buses project) and CIRQUE
DES MOTS / CIRCUS OF WORDS a multilingual cabaret of
performance poetry.

Her most recent book is SATIE'S SAD PIANO, nominated
earlier this year for the Pat Lowther Award and the
Mary Scorer Award. A French translation of SNOW
FORMATIONS was published by Les Éditions Triptyque in
