Klara du Plessis

Klara du Plessis (she/her) is the author of Ekke and Hell Light Flesh (Palimpsest Press)—both works of long-form poetry, which have won or been shortlisted for the Pat Lowther Memorial Award, the Gerald Lampert Memorial Award, the Raymond Souster Award, and the A.M. Klein Prize for Poetry. Klara is a PhD candidate at Concordia University researching the curation of recent and contemporary poetry readings. Part of her research creation expands her curatorial practice into experimental Deep Curation poetry reading events, an approach which places poets’ work in deliberate dialogue with each other and heightens the curator’s agency toward the poetic event. Klara writes in English, Afrikaans, and translingually.
