Michèle Gagnon’s roots as a story teller where planted early when she illustrated and wrote her first story, with the help of her mom, at the age of four. She began writing poetry by the age of twelve. In her years as a young writer and post-secondary student she won a few writing and poetry prizes at Heritage College. After taking a long break from the life of a wordsmith to explore motherhood, career and entrepreneurship she is, once more, calling forth her muse. Her poems “Phoenix” and “Waste Land” will be featured in the September issue of Northword Magazine.
Michèle is currently working on an illustrated poetry collection that explores feminist themes and hopes to display the fusion of her art and verse in the upcoming year.
