Emily Carr

Emily Carr is a doctoral candidate at the University of Calgary studying contemporary poetics and performance studies. These poems are from her most recent manuscript If She Draws a Door (about the size and shape of a sparrow) Only She Can Pass Through It. Each poem is a collaboration with a variety of contemporary Canadian and American poets’ voices, grammars, forms. “The only constraint was allowing single words and slices of language to drift into and re-shape my writing. The dictionary form thus becomes a performance of self expression through the shared experience of language.”
