InkSwarm is a blog of the Writer-in-Res­i­dence of Kelowna’s Pub­lic Art Pol­li­na­tor Pas­ture. The writer blogs reg­u­lar­ly about thoughts, expe­ri­ences, and ideas that relate in diverse ways to the Pol­li­na­tor Pas­ture project both in Kelow­na and, occa­sion­al­ly, in Rich­mond. The posts may record expe­ri­ences of events and gath­er­ings of the Pol­li­na­tor Pas­ture com­mu­ni­ty, or could riff on facts about bees, or could be poet­ic med­i­ta­tions on place or plants or art prac­tices such as poet­ry. The blog is part of the artis­tic, lit­er­ary and jour­nal­is­tic record­ing, devel­op­ment, and enrich­ment of the Pub­lic Art Pol­li­na­tor Pas­ture, one art­ful pub­lic face of the project.

Our writer-in-res­i­dence for 2015–2016 is poet and UBC MFA stu­dent Fion­ncara MacEoin.
