“[…] Kelsey [was] wonderful.  Talented poet AND skilled facilitator with teenagers. Teachers and students had a riot:  we clapped, laughed, moaned, wrote, and “barked” through totally engaging activities that had us playing with words, voices, and body language. Thanks, again, for bringing the energy of living poetry to our students.”
– Tina Hopkins, Teacher, Sutherland Secondary School

“Kelsey has a passion for life and she translates it with intelligence. People can relate to that and that’s why it’s so quiet when she does her readings. I’ve shot a number of … shows and for the shows where there’s a spoken word component, she’s the only one I’ve seen where the audience gets quiet.”
– Bob Ayers, Professional Photographer
