Joanne Arnott

Musicality is a primary quality of my work-- the murmuring of a talking circle and the wind in the grass-- whether in poetry or prose. I engage in both big picture and political matters as well as the most intimate human moments, with a personal voice that seeks to share life at the deepest levels. Topics may arise from within, be suggested by a conversation, or come at the request of an editor: whatever the motivation, I pour my best self into each glass.

Joanne Arnott is a Metis, writer and performer from Manitoba, currently living in lower mainland B.C.
