Sandra is a teacher with a history of organizing poetry events, editing books for other people and providing venues for poets to read, work, protest and learn. She is a regular reader at Twigs & Leaves near Montreal, has many poems in various publications (magazines and anthologies) in seven provinces, the US and New Zealand. Recordings of her readings are archived in several places. Currently one poem is part of an exhibit at a BC University because it helped save a 27-acre forest, and another is displayed in a poem garden in Kingston Ontario. Her four chapbooks are as different from each other as sea creatures. Nova Scotia’s Antigonish Review was Czandra’s first Canadian publisher.
Sandra (Czandra) is also an eclectic poet and essayist of many styles and a single voice. Her poems range from playful and melodious to terse and formal. Her subjects cover social commentary, language, the everyday and the unique. Her voice has been acclaimed by listeners who find an arresting “je ne sais quoi” in the way Czandra reads.
