  • Kelly-Anne Riess is an award-winning poet, filmmaker, journalist and copywriter living in Regina.

    Riess was shortlisted for a Saskatchewan Lieutenant Governorís Arts Award, a Regina Mayor's Art Award and a YWCA Woman of Distinction Award.

    She has also received the Blue Sky Award in Journalism (2004) and the C. Irwin McIntosh Journalism Prize (2003) from the School of Journalism at the University of Regina.
