Kickoff Classic - Meet the Poets

Jen Brisseau

With a wayward and often surreal style, Jens words are sure to slay.  Come see her take the stage at this years Kickoff Classic.  



1.    What did you read this summer?

What the Soul Doesn't Want by Lorna Crozier, There are More Beautiful Things Than Beyonce by Morgan Parker, and Otolith by Emily Nilsen.

2.    What is your favourite thing to do in the fall in the Okanagan?

Enjoy the cooler weather.  Some might call it vest-weather.  I do too.

3.    If you were a pumpkin spice latte, who’s pumpkin spice latte would you be and why?

Fuck pumpkin spice lattes.  Fuck Starbucks.  Fuck capitalism.  Fuck Trump.  Fuck everything.  Ugh.  How did we get here?

4.    IPA or pilsner?  Ramen or pho?

Neither.  Both.

5.    How many fires would you say you personally started this summer?

All of them.  Most certainly.
