NEW ED­I­TOR-IN-RES­I­DENCE

Geist - - Miscellany -

We’d like to in­tro­duce our new ed­i­tor-in­res­i­dence, Shan­non Webb-camp­bell. She is a mixed Mi’kmaq-set­tler poet, writer and critic. Her forth­com­ing book Who Took My Sis­ter? (Book­thug, March 2018) ex­plores Canada’s Miss­ing and Mur­dered In­dige­nous Women, de­colo­nial poet­ics, trauma and the land, and will be trans­formed into a tour­ing clas­si­cal mu­sic per­for­mance for vi­o­lin and piano. Her book Still No Word (Break­wa­ter, 2015), was the re­cip­i­ent of Egale Canada’s Out In Print Award. Shan­non is a mem­ber of Qalipu Mi’kmaq First Na­tion, and cur­rently lives in Mon­treal. She will be our ed­i­tor-in-res­i­dence for this is­sue and the next, Geist 108. Read some of the po­ems from Who Took My Sis­ter?
