Kemp, Penn, London, ON

Enthusiastic sound poet Penn Kemp performs and publishes everywhere: online and in Brazil! Penn’s publications include twenty-five books of poetry and drama, eight CDs of Sound Opera and Sound Poetry as well as Canada's first CD-ROM. Since Coach House published her first book in 1972, Penn has been pushing text and aural boundaries, often in participatory performance. She presents her Sound Operas in happy collaboration with actors, poets and musicians. Her videopoem won for best performance (Voice Award), Vancouver Videopoem Festival. Through Pendas Productions, Penn edits and publishes poetry book/cds, The League of Poets proclaimed her one of the foremothers of Canadian poetry.
