Instructor: Danica Lorer

Danica Lorer has spent the past twenty years as a professional storyteller. She has been struck by lightning, a moose, a rogue semi-tire, vehicles, and the odd strange idea. She is a freelance writer, workshop facilitator, face and body painter, slam and page poet, and the host of Shaw Spotlight Saskatoon’s literary arts program ‘Lit Happens’. She was part of the Tonight it’s Poetry team that competed at the Canadian Festival of Spoken Word in Guelph in 2019. She has been published in grain, antiLang, Spring, untethered, Poetry All Over the Floor, Release Any Words Stuck Inside of You and Alice Unbound: Beyond Wonderland.

Guest Author: Carol Rose GoldenEagle

In less than a decade, Carol Daniels has established herself as an artist and writer of note. She was published in several anthologies between 2008 and 2004. Her debut novel, Bearskin Diary (2015), has received provincial and national recognition. It was selected as the winner in First Nation Communities READ, where a jury of librarians from First Nation public libraries in Ontario selected it from more than 50 titles submitted by Canadian publishers. It received the Periodical Marketers of Canada Aboriginal Literature Award, was short-listed for three 2016 Saskatchewan Book Awards and was a selected work in CBC’s Turtle Island Reads.  In 2019, the French translation Peau D’ours received a Saskatchewan Book Award.

Carol’s first book of poetry, Hiraeth (2018), is already receiving national attention, including making CBC Books’ list of six Canadian books to read in May.  In 2018, her novel Bone Black was released.  Her next novel, Narrows of Fear, will be released later in 2020.  Her second book of poetry, Essential Ingredients, will be released in 2021.

Carol is Cree and Chipewyan with roots in Sandy Bay. A multi-disciplinary artist, she shares her storytelling, singing, drumming and visual art in schools, libraries, community centres and children’s festivals across the province.

She has read her work at literary events throughout Saskatchewan, British Columbia, Ontario and the Northwest Territories. Her visual artwork has been exhibited in art galleries across Saskatchewan and northern Canada. A CD of women’s drum songs, on which Carol was featured, was recently nominated for a Prairie Music Award.

Before pursuing art on a full-time basis, Carol was a journalist for more than 30 years, working in television and radio at APTN, CTV and CBC.
