du Plessis

Klara du Plessis’ debut collection Ekke, released from Palimpsest Press, won the 2019 Pat Lowther Memorial Award and was shortlisted for the Gerald Lampert Memorial Award. Her second book, Hell Light Flesh, is forthcoming in fall 2020. du Plessis is a PhD English Literature student at Concordia University, a researcher for SpokenWeb, and currently expanding her curatorial practice to include experimental Deep Curation poetry reading events, an approach which places poets’ work in deliberate dialogue with each other and heightens the curator’s agency toward the poetic product. She lives in Montreal.
