Vannessa Barnier : part one

Vannessa Barnier is a creative project instigator and facilitator. She is the owner and host of Legible Intelligibles, a summer open mic poetry reading series in the park. On weekends, she is a bookseller at House of Anansi's brick and mortar store. She feels strongly and often.

She currently resides in the west end of Toronto.


How does a poem begin?

For me, a poem begins with a singular, particular instance. It starts with something said, something witnessed, or a long-form experience that caught on something inside of you like a hook, and you have no choice but to open it up, lay it out and build around it.
