Sheri-D Wilson turns language on its head, exuberantly coining new words that seem absolutely necessary-like arborolatry (a great word for idolizing trees). Her mastery of sound is hypnotic.

-Kerry Clare, 49th Shelf


Sheri-D Wilson's The Book of Sensations is as much, or moreso, about language as it is about Sensations . . . In many of the pieces, it's difficult not to give an oral rendering, and I found myself getting caught in my own word play, taking her logo-vein and lengthening it, then being pulled back to her artery-an interesting combination of writer and reader's voice I have a feeling this was intentional . . . Wilson is clearly a reader who loves the taste and feel of words on her tongue as they rumble in her mouth, and bounce on the tympanum of the ear.

-Beth Everest, Freefall Magazine

Sheri-D Wilson is the award-winning author of eleven books, the creator of four short films, and has released three albums which combine music and poetry. Her collection, Re:Zoom (Frontenac House, 2005), won the 2006 Stephan G. Stephansson Award for Poetry and was shortlisted for the CanLit Award.
