Danielle LaFrance

Following the would-be poetics mapped in JUST LIKE I LIKE IT (Talonbooks, 2019), Danielle LaFrance arrives at thinking and acting from a position where illusions are just that, illusions, and can be destroyed. She authors Friendly + Fire (Talonbooks, 2016) and species branding (Capilano University Editions, 2010).

Their fourth poetry project #postdildo thinks and writes through the limitlessness and limitations of sexuality and desire. Focusing on the dildo as sexual object and social relation, they ask “How shall You fuck without causing harm?”

Her poetry and critical writing have appeared in The Capilano Review, LESTE, Tripwire, and Organism for Poetic Research, among other journals and magazines.

They try to live and hate to rent and work on the stolen lands of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, and Səl̓ílwətaʔ peoples.
