FEATURING WINNIPEG'S LEIF NORMAN
http://leifnorman.com/Home_Page.html
Leif Norman has been doing performance poetry for nearly ten years now, and he has just recently started to get good at it. He enjoys perusing his dictionary collection for new and subtle definitions for words such as; surreal, platitudinous, and diatribe to add literal fuel to his metaphorical fire. He is currently working on a 100 page book of research based poetry with the working title of "The Title of the Book dot com" which will be an investigation into diacritic symbols, phonetics, recipes where the only ingredient is bacon and an anthropological breakdown of Slam poetry
