Ian Cognitō – Surrey Muse

Ian Cognitō is a poet, author and the founder and artistic director of 15 Minutes of Infamy, a word-craft cabaret in Nanaimo BC where he also works as the assistant director of the WordStorm Society of the Arts. Since authoring flora, fauna & h. sapiens, a poetic tango with co-author, Pat Smekal, Ian has been putting the finishing touches on Animusings: a bestiary of poetic reflection. He also writes short fiction and has an extensive portfolio of children’s fiction in verse. His other incarnations have included language instructor, child and youth care worker, and theatrical clown (in no particular order). Ian lives in Yellowpoint BC.
