Renée Sarojini Saklikar is an award-winning author, instructor, and editor who lives in Vancouver. By sharing examples from her own poetry, teaching, and editing, Saklikar will answer the question, “What qualities and skills are important for a poetry editor?” Each of Saklikar’s books has broken new ground in Canadian poetics: children of air india, about the bombing of Air India Flight 182, won the Canadian Authors Association Award for Poetry and was shortlisted for the Dorothy Livesay Poetry Prize, while Listening to the Bees, eco-poetics and essays co-authored with Dr. Mark L. Winston, won gold in the environment/ecology category at the 2019 Independent Publisher Book Awards. Saklikar is an instructor at Simon Fraser University and Vancouver Community College and was the poet laureate for the City of Surrey (2015–2018), as well as the 2017 UBC Okanagan Writer in Residence. Her latest book, Bramah and the Beggar Boy, is an innovative blend of fantasy fiction and epic verse, and it debuted as a BC bestseller. Find out more at
