2021-2022 Events

Thank you to Rebecca Salazar for your contribution of poetry to our Northern Dreams concert.



We were delighted to present the work of Rebecca Salazar, a former cellist with the Sudbury Youth Orchestra, whose poetry collection, sulphurtongue, was shortlisted for the 2021 Governor General’s Award for English-language poetry. Rebecca read excerpts from that volume. 


Originally from Sudbury, Rebecca is currently based in Fredericton, New Brunswick, where she is a doctoral student at the University of New Brunswick. She previously published the collections Guzzle (2016) and the knife you need to justify the wound (2018).


Rebecca’s work was winner of the Open Season Poetry Award (2015), and The RBC Bronwen Wallace Award for Emerging Writers (2019). She also made the longlist for the Pat Lowther Memorial Award and the Gerald Lampert Memorial Award.

Thanks for a great season!
