naoise HSW2 Naoise Hefferon is a Toronto-based writer and performance poet. In her literary process, she holds words by the scruff of the neck and up to the light, that they might work harder and mean more, occasionally finding beauty in the undoing of language and the gross accident of being. Once described as “the coolest effing thing I’ve ever heard in my life”, her interpretation of sound poetry (Vocal Sampling) attempts the execution of a melodic sort of thrashing about, gauzy and indelible.

Naoise’s work has appeared in Canadian literary journals and on local stages.
She is honoured to be featuring at Hot Sauced.
