Heather Haley

About Me:

"A Canadian national treasure,” poet, author, musician and media artist Heather Haley pushes boundaries by creating across disciplines, genre and media. She has been published in numerous journals and anthologies, is the author of Three Blocks West of Wonderland, forthcoming on Ekstasis Editions and Sideways, (Anvil Press) described as "brawny and uncompromising" and “supple and unusual.” She was an editor and writer for the LA Weekly, publisher of Rattler and the Edgewise Cafe, one of Canada's first electronic literary magazines. She is the producer and director of videopoems, Dying For The Pleasure and Purple Lipstick, an official selection at over a dozen international film festivals. Haley is the host and curator of SEE THE VOICE: Visible Verse at Pacific Cinémathèque in Vancouver, North America’s sustaining venue for the presentation of new and artistically significant poetry video and film. RPW Records released her critically acclaimed AURAL Heather CD of spoken word songs, Princess Nut, in June 2008. Her poem, Whore In The Eddy, appears in ROCKsalt: Anthology of BC Poetry, the first such anthology in over thirty year as well as the Verse Map Of Vancouver, edited by the city’s poet laureate George McWhirter.
