Wil George – Surrey Muse

Wil George is a poet and storyteller from Tsleil-Waututh Nation of Coast Salish. His poetry book ‘Survival In Its Many Shapes’ was published by UNIT-PITT Projects in 2011 while the book launch was accompanied by a video, and a radio program that broadcast the readings presented at the event. Wil received Vancouver Mayor’s Arts Award for Literary Arts in 2017. His poems have appeared in various literary publications including Ricepaper Magazine, and ‘Salish Seas: an anthology of text + image‘ published by Aboriginal Writers West Coast in 2011. Wil’s poetry ‘focuses on water-bodies (inlets, rivers, oceans, etc.) and the land (mountains, forests, shore-lines, etc.) He also uses Wolf and Raven from traditional Salish stories in contemporary settings and to address contemporary issues.’
