Kelowna Poetry Slam: Canada Day Throwdown - Meet the Poets

Amanda Kelly

Amanda first came out of the poetry closet, three years ago at an IWC event and has been spinning words ever since. Poetry came as a sort of therapy when she was diagnosed with Epilepsy in 2013 and helps her make sense of the intricacies of life. Amanda’s poetry is curious about the messy relationships we have with our loved ones, society, the natural world and our own minds.
