Unleash Your Inner Geek! Poet, science writer, and interdisciplinary adventurer Mari-Lou Rowley will help you explore the language and concepts of science to inspire new ideas, impressions and poetic forms. Participants will be encouraged to draw on readings from diverse texts—newspapers, science mags, online zines—to lure you in novel poetic directions/dimensions. Be prepared to surprise yourself!

Mari-Lou Rowley has published nine collections of poetry. Her most recent book, Unus Mundus (Anvil Press 2013) has been shortlisted for three Saskatchewan Book Awards. Some of her science poetry can be found in the Journal of Humanistic Mathematics and on the Canadian Association of Physicists website. Mari-Lou is currently completing a PhD in new media, neuroplasticity and empathy at the U of S.
