.About the Readers:

Natalie Meisner is a writer from Lockeport, Nova Scotia. Her plays have been produced across the country, won numerous awards, been collected in book form and appear in numerous Canadian Anthologies. Her previous book, Double Pregnant: Two Lesbians Make a Family, is a lighthearted and informative true account of two lesbians who want to have children. Her plays have won the Canadian National Playwriting Competition, been shortlisted for the Herman Voaden, and been produced by CBC Radio. A wife and mother of two great boys, Natalie divides her time between Lockeport, Nova Scotia, and Salt Spring Island, BC.

Vanessa Shields has made her home, her family and her work life flourish in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. Her passion for writing was discovered at a very young age through the vein of writing in a journal. Her first book, Laughing Through A Second Pregnancy – A Memoir, was published by Black Moss Press in 2011 to rave reviews. In April 2013, Shields edited a poetry anthology entitled, Whisky Sour City (Black Moss Press). I Am That Woman (Black Moss Press), her first book of poetry, was published in January 2014, and had its third printing in 2015. Look At Her (Black Moss Press) launched in September 2016, and went into its second printing in December 2016. In 2017, Shields was part of a Group of Seven poets published in an anthology about the history of Windsor, entitled Because We Have All Lived Here (Black Moss Press). In June 2018, the chapbook Feminism: Revisit, Revise, Revolutionize: A Two-part Harmony was published by the League of Canadian Poets’ Feminist Caucus with Shields as co-editor/introduction writer. She wrote a monthly blog for the League of Canadian Poets on being a writing parent, and is an avid member of the Feminist Caucus. She is passionate about promoting poetry and the writing life, and is often on a jury (or two!) for major awards and/or contests. In April 2021, her latest collection of poetry entitled ‘Thimbles‘ was published by Palimpsest Press. Shields is the owner of Gertrude’s Writing Room – A Gathering Place for Writers, that opened for business in July 2018. Gertrude’s Writing Room offers creative writing classes and workshops.
