I am Margot Van Sluytman, Published Poet and Writer, Administrator of, and I am holding the First International Dance-With-Words Poetry Contest. I am a Professional Member of the Canadian Author’s Association, Peterborough Chair of the Federation of Canadian Poets. Lover of language.

I have a wonderful dream of dancing around the world with language, with words, sharing within communities and groups who value how the process of using words inspires richness, springing from soul, even souls that have been hurt – finding and creating joy. was create to have a place to go to talk with respect and passion, to write poetry and prose, to listen to the words of others. To dance. To dance. To dance.

It is my other dream to promote artists who would otherwise not be able to promote themselves – to create a site for the work of individuals whose work must be known. Must be shared.
