TPS is back and we got a special treat for our fans! We often feature spoken word poets but this time we're featuring a spoken word AND theatre artist Vanessa Smythe!

Bio:

Vanessa Smythe is a writer, actor, and theatre creator from Toronto. She has collaborated with the likes of Woody Harrelson and Julianne Moore, and has mentored with Christian Bök, Daniel MacIvor, and d’bi Young. Her original solo show, In Case We Disappear, played to critical and popular embrace in Toronto, New York, and the UK, where it was named one of the best free shows at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe (BFTBOScotland). Recently featured on the CBC, Vanessa is the Performance Poet in Residence with Outside the March, as well as the former host of their monthly live storytelling event, The Spoke. In addition to performing and creating new work, Vanessa leads poetry and creation workshops all across the country. She loves live music, getting lost in the woods, and a good, long, meandering heart-to-heart. @vsmythe
