About Me

I’m a poet, community educator, and social activist who likes to stir the pot, literally and figuratively.

Email me.  I’ll try to respond quickly but I don’t necessarily get to this account on a daily basis.

  1. I’m recriprocating your “linky” love. I will be back to do some more serious reading the next time my beloved lets this little coyote play with her mouse (tee hee). Have you visited http://bloggersblurt.wordpress.com yet because I could “linky” you there too provided you know how to jump stubble and/or howl.
    Keep your girls ^^ up and keep smiling.

  2. I’m still not sure how I got your link under poetry. I thought I’d put it under politics…and now I don’t have time to figure it out… And no, I’ve not visited bloggersblurt, but will soon do so.

  3. Hi, I came across your blog by searching ‘canadian feminist’ in blogspot. I’m trying to find a community within Canada–all the main blogs i visit are based in the US. We’ve got a lot of action going on here, I just want to know where to find it online.
    Thanks for posting Ginette Petitpas’ article on the federal cuts. I’m from NB, and think she’s an excellent writer and activist.

  4. hey, do you suppose you would be able to drop me a quick line with your email address? I wanted to write to you about Megan Walker, but I couldn’t find your email address anywhere and I figured that you’d like to know a few other details about the race.

  5. Berlynn, sorry, I missed that you moved to WordPress. I’ve made corrections to Saskblogs. Your posts and the link should be accurate now.

    Cheers,
    lance

  6. Berlynn: Thanks for sharing more details of your interests with me. Feminism has taken big steps backward in recent years, in terms of young generations’ aspirations and ad-media pressures, so we need people like you. In exchange, if you want to know more about me, you can read a recent essay on Sam Hamill’s site at http://www.poetsagainstthewar.org, where it is posted in the winter 2007 newsletter, next to an essay by Adrienne Rich.

  7. Hi there! Thanks for the work you do. I got linked her by some guy’s site where he was mocking “Vagina Warriors” and I knew I had to check your blog out. Thanks for all the hard work you do.

    I’ve worked on 3 Vagina Monologues Productions now and I realize the incredable strength and imporatance of Vagina Monologues. Some people just can’t see beyond their own selfish reality to see the real hurts out there.

    I’m bookmarking your site!

  8. you kick ass on the Uranium issue… there are so many sites laden with mine tailings from the Uranium Industry in Saskatchewan’s north that it will be uninhabitable because of ground water seepage that has now found its way into the lakes, rivers and underground water.

    You can’t take that stuff back! BRAD WALL IS A MEGAPROJECT MANIAC! DONT LET HIM and the RESURECTED PC PARTY also know as the SASKPARTY … get their hands on the SASKATCHEWAN ECONOMY AGAIN!!! DONT LET BRAD WALL CREATE MORE DEBT!!!

  10. Dear Politics n Poetry,

    I was wondering if you would consider writing a posting about the true origins of Mother’s Day in North America, which you may already know are in
    honouring women’s activism and contributions to changing society, not about
    women’s domestic labour or commercialism. The organization that I work with, the Canadian organization, InterPares, has an alternative Mother’s Day campaign called “Take Back the Day” (www.takebacktheday.ca). We partner with organizations around the world who are promoting women’s rights and positive social transformation
    in their countries. “Take Back the Day” celebrates the original meaning
    of Mother’s Day through our animated video that tells the true her-story,
    and encourages people to make donations to support women working for the
    same goals today as the holiday’s founders. Gifts receive up to ten e-cards
    (and can add their photo too).
    Regardless of whether your post includes a shout-out to our campaign, we
    definitely hope that the holiday’s her-story gets more coverage, and that mothers and other women are given their credit they deserve for changing society – on Mother’s Day especially, and every day in general.

    Sorry for contacting you in this comment section…I couldn’t find an email >.<

    Thanks for all your great work.
