Cascadia Poetics LAB logo


Greg LainsburyGreg (GP) Lainsbury, Professor in the English department at Northern Lights College, Fort St. John, BC is another of the poets with work published in Make It True: Poetry From Cascadia. On July 29, 2015, stopped by the SPLAB Lucile complex (during Seafair of all possible moments) to share some work and answer a couple of questions about Cascadia. He was doing what he called a “transit” of Cascadia with his partner Kara-lee MacDonald. He read from Half-Life, part of a serial poem he’s composing, about how Barry McKinnon opened him up to the possibility of the serial poem and Versions of North, the part of the poem which preceded Half-Life. He talked about how his poetry reveals his poetics and about his Texlahoma project
