About  SONJA RUTH GRECKOL

 

Driven to write poetry initially when right wing Mike Harris was reelected as Premier of Ontario, she now finds herself despairing at the cruelty and vengefulness of his newly elected acolyte, Doug Ford. She remains cheered by convivial crowds, subways and bike lanes.

Having taught college and university, studied order and disorder in jokes, done human rights and gender-based research and organizational diversity consulting, she now does local activism with the Toronto Women’s City Alliance (TWCA), a kickass group of mostly young women, while she writes.

Sonja Ruth Greckol’s work has appeared in Literary Review of Canada, Canadian Literature, Dalhousie Review, CV2, Canadian Women’s Studies, Fiddlehead, Matrix, and online at Influency Salon, Ditch, Rusty Toque and most recently at La Presa.

She edits poetry for Women and Environments International. Greckol has done residencies in Saratoga Springs, Vilnius, Granada, Banff and Montreal.
