Erin Dingle

Erin Dingle tells it like it is. Whether it’s sad, silly, science or NSFW, they “take that confused feeling or idea you’ve never had words for and paint it into poetry you’ll understand.”  Dingle talked her way onto the Finals stage at the Canadian Independent Poetry Slam competition five years in a row. She placed 2nd in 2015. In 2016, she received the first Zaccheus Jackson Nyce Memorial Award for Poetry and Community Spirit.  Dingle has rocked the mic for Ted-x, the YWCA, the Peter Gzowski Invitational, Poverty Talks, and numerous other poetry and spoken word festivals across Canada. She teaches classes and workshops on exploring emotional resilience through writing and performance in Calgary schools, camps like fYrefly and Wordsworth and at multiple other youth and adult events.
