Jacq Brass includes themes of love, activism, change and identity throughout her poetry and has been described as honest, blunt and unapologetic in her work. She started performing poetry in Yellowknife, NT in 2011. Jacq has been published in a Yellowknife poetry zine entitled Laid Muskrat, a Canadian anthology of poetry entitled Harvest and has self-published two poetry chapbooks. She competed in the Canadian Individual Poetry Slam during the Verses Festival in Vancouver in April 2014 and again in 2015. She participated in Northwords NWT for the first time last year and is ecstatic to be back.
When Jacq isn’t doing poetry, you can find her watching Netflix with a slice of pizza in one hand and a glass of whiskey in the other.
