  • Poetry of Resistance and Change is an installation of poems printed on paper and mounted to the exterior of The Soap Factory Gallery in 2017. The project was meant to activate the exterior of the building during renovation and included letterpress printed postcards and poetry performances. 
  • Grandmother and Beebee  is a humour-laced retelling of my childhood  in the Deep South with an auntie and a grandmother who have very different ideas about what it means to be a woman.  Featured as part of "Listen to Your Mother," an annual storytelling event about motherhood at the Parkway Theatre. 
  • Poets Clarence White and Hawona Sullivan Janzen turn a festival booth at Rondo Days into a typewriter poetry creation studio complete with vintage typewriters and White Out correction fluid.  Visitors could sit and share a story and the poets would compose a poem for each participant in about an hour.
