Carla has performed at Verses Festival in Vancouver (2017) and Saskatoon Poetic Arts Festival (2018) and many events and venues as a spoken word artist over the past 10 years. She writes and creates in many different genres of visual and performing arts, from sculpture to scriptwriting. Her first poetry chapbook, Obtain No Proof, is with the Dis/Ability Series of Frog Hollow Press.
Carla teaches young writers to explore improvisation and creative experimentation, to experience the excitement of creating art, opposed to the pressure of performing in competitive settings. Carla has acted as a writer-in-residence for school groups and summer programs.
