Apart from writing poetry, Miles is a painter, leather craft worker, soapstone carver, and a multifaceted reno-worker specializing in hard wood flooring.
“Single and looking for work”, Miles’ poetry is truthful and hardhitting.
Enjoy James C. Miles read his work from “Broken Arrow: Native Men’s Writing, Art, and Culture”.
A multidisciplinary artist, Moore not only writes poems and plays, he makes dreamcatchers, chokers, and bracelets.
Surviving a car accident that saw him break his neck, pelvis, and 9 ribs, as well as puncturing his lungs and colon, Moore says, “I got a rod, screws, pins, and wires in my body, it’s wild!”
Becoming addicted to painkillers after his accident, Moore is in Toronto on a healing road to break free from his addiction. He plans on attending college to become a recreation counsellor so he can go back to his community and help the kids “stop the cycle of violence.”
Enjoy Albert Moore’s honest and raw poetry.
