SCOTT, Jordan




Author Tags: Poetry

From the slave camps of WW II-era Poland to family resettlement in the lower Fraser Valley, Jordan Scott traces his grandfather's journey in a series of poems drawn from his grandfather's journals for Silt (New Star, 2004). Coquitlam-based Jordan Scott graduated from Creative Writing at University of Calgary and published two previous poetry chapbooks, Mere Mismemory (Delusional Books, 2001) and A Walking History of Wladyslaw's Body in Parts (Housepress, 2002). His 2008 book Blert is about stutterers. Scott has struggled with stuttering all his life, and this book is his transformation of stutter into art.
