Biography: 

Kyla Jamieson is a disabled poet and organizer who lives and relies on the unceded traditional territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations, in the city currently known as Vancouver. Her writing reimagines time, embodiment, care, and intimacy in the aftermath of a brain injury. Body Count (Nightwood Editions, 2020), her début collection of poems, was shortlisted for the 2021 Pat Lowther Memorial Award, and her work has twice been longlisted for the CBC Poetry Prize.
