Rami Schandall is moving in to the Flick the Switch Grange lofts. She is a Toronto poet and interdisciplinary artist, mentor and yoga teacher, and founder / principle at Visual Creative graphic design studio. Her poem, “Timepiece,” was the winner of The Malahat Review’s 2019 Open Season Award, and her prose poem ‘Fernando’ was shortlisted for the same prize in 2020. She is interested in the telling and miss-telling of stories, the weird insight available in poetic accident, and cross-pollination between linguistic, visual, and sonic art forms.
Currently in development: a poetry manuscript, and a book-length work whose subject is the tragic story of a family that lived on a remote island in northern British Columbia one century ago.
