Poets in Profile: Kathryn Mockler

London, Ontario is a great home to poets. Poet and filmmaker Kathryn Mockler is deeply involved in the city's creative scene as both a creative writing instructor at the University of Western Ontario and as co-founder and co-editor of the literary and arts journal The Rusty Toque.

In today's Poets in Profile interview, Kathryn tells us about her sister's bright red tape recorder, Arda Collin's cantaloupe lady and the corn canning factory near London that inspired her first collection of poetry, The Onion Man (Tightrope Books). Her second book, The Saddest Place on Earth, has just been published with DC Books.
