War Poet

Postby riverwriter » Tue Apr 21, 2009 10:04 pm


This is the site of smsteele, who has been commissioned by the Canadian Armed Forces to go on training missions with the troops at bases all over Canada, and eventually to go to Afghanistan with the forces there. She has been writing about this experience in her blog, posting what she calls "beta works", or works in progress. The site also has postings from a fascinating love story, soon to become a radio play, May Day, which is a series of letters written by a young woman who is having an affair with a married man serving in Afghanistan with the Canadian Forces.

In her own words:
WarPoet.ca is one of smsteele's Canadian Forces Artist Program projects. Through text, audio, images, video and contributions by Canada's military personnel, warpoet.ca examines and records the contemporary Canadian war experience.
