Nikki Reimer’s first book of poetry, [sic] (Frontenac House 2010), was shortlisted for the Gerald Lampert Memorial Award. She has published three chapbooks: that stays news (Nomados Press 2011), haute action material (Heavy Industries 2011) and fist things first (Wrinkle Press 2009). Poetry, artwork, and criticism have appeared in various places, online and off. A second poetry manuscript is forthcoming in 2014. Reimer recently attended the In(ter)ventions Residency at the Banff Centre. She currently lives in Calgary, where she is a director of the Chris Reimer Legacy Fund Society. Visit reimerwrites.com.
