Names

This page is for all those people who signed their names, whether to poems, prayers, complaints, observations, essays… I believed when i began this project that people want to be seen, to be known, to belong. Here are the people who took time to reflect on my invitation to reflect on what is poetic about Edmonton. 

This page is also a Thank You, to the many people without whom i’d never have done this project. If i have neglected to mention you, please forgive me.
