Colleen Knight is a poet, blogger, playwright, and writer.
She’s a poet, a community TA for Modern and Contemporary American Poetry affectionately known as ModPo, a mentor for Sharpened Visions: A Poetry Workshop, and a member of the Writers’ Community of Durham Region.
She has two poems, “hate, borders & boundaries” and “towards foreign” published on I am not a silent poet. She was long-listed for a poetry award for the 2015 Ontario Writers’ Conference and one of her poems is used by a poet-in-residence in a B.C. rehab facility for the family members and loved ones.
She work-shopped and co-wrote the production of Fourteen, with eight young teenaged women, under the playwright Jim Garrard, co-founder of Theatre Passe Muraille.
She wrote talking points and speeches for local environmental issues and rallies.
She was a contributing mindfulness meditation blogger, and guest columnist for Metroland Media.
She wrote sales and marketing copy for the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts, when Canada’s largest theatre, in Toronto, was called The O’Keefe Centre and The Hummingbird Centre for the Performing Arts, plus she wrote copy for The National Ballet of Canada.
She’s warming up to the open mic, keeps an artist’s journal, enjoys the company of her dog more than most humans, is a deltiologist, sometimes gets called Flarf Grrrl, has picked the Dickinsonian side, prefers reading five paperback books at one time, is learning how to play the guitar and find she’s quite good at aleatory music, gardens because she’s always liked playing in the mud, and tries to remember to meditate.
