This month our feature poet is Larissa Tarasoff from Ottawa, ON!

“Larissa Tarasoff is an Ottawa-based poet with a little sprig of prairie between her displaced toes. On good days she’s magma; bubbling and bursting, spitting fire and ash into the atmosphere. On bad days, she’s a world-weary mourner in dinosaur skin and lead rain boots. But she is always a love-struck dreamer with a belly full of wanderlust and cheap beer. In her non-poetry time, she’s learning the art of bone photography, to see what you keep inside that holds you upright.

From Saskatchewan to the Capital City, she’s performed at events ranging from the USSU’s Concert for Consent, to Rosebuds Burlesque shows, to Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan, to Poets and Pancakes. She took home a fancy first place trophy at the Canadian Festival of Spoken Word with the Saskatoon Slam Team in 2015, and has had work published in Silence and Poetry All Over The Floor.”
