The Book of Sensations

In The Book of Sensations, Sheri-D Wilson muses imagery that explores the connection between the natural world and the word.

As our world rapidly changes, Wilson is inspired to speak about how we might reconnect to each other and to the earth. She delves into the ancient world to look for answers—to seek the threads we have lost. Language is at the centre of her inquest.

Swerve

A collection of poems and performance pieces, Wilson unveils a new feminine/feminist panorama of erotica, a subject area reclaimed from the realm of male writers.
