Moni Brar


Black and white photo of Moni Brar. She has short, black, curly hair and is looking up and slightly to the right.

Moni Brar was born in rural Punjab and raised on the land of the Tse’Khene peoples. Hailing from a long lineage of illiterate subsistence farmers, she spends much of her time contemplating land, loss, language, and longing. She is the recipient of a Banff Centre Residency, the Queen Elizabeth Platinum Jubilee Medal, the Lieutenant Governor of Alberta Emerging Artist Award, and The Fiddlehead’s Poetry Prize. Her writing appears in Best Canadian Poetry, The Literary Review of Canada, Passages North, and elsewhere. She believes art contains the possibility of healing. Instagram: @monibrar
