Isaac Sénéchal is a poet, filmmaker and fiction writer. He is a native of Montreal who holds a BA degree from Concordia University and currently works as a video and film production professional. His poetry often explores plural perspectives and the power of storytelling. Many of his poems feature familiar forms of prosody while others are structured by forms of his own invention, influenced by styles ranging from the ballad to blues and slam. In film, Isaac works in fiction and documentary trying to bring to audiences the stories of those whose voices are rarely heard. He is also interested in hybrid poetry and film – art that mixes these mediums or different genres of a medium – and art that evokes questions about the way it’s made and received.
