Claudia was born and raised in Collingwood and completed her honours degree in English and Creative Writing at Dalhousie University in Halifax. During her term as Collingwood's second Poet Laureate, Claudia made numerous appearances at community and civic gatherings, created poetry installations for our parks and trails, led workshops and hosted events and offered us words and prose that brought joy and hope to the commuity during the pandemic while reminding us of the importance of the arts to our health and well-being. Thank you Claudia!
