Lisa Arsenault is from Timmins, Ontario. I moved to Toronto in 1981, went to Etienne Brule French high school, and then completd a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from York University. I wrote poetry casually over the years. In 2011, a creative outburst led me to take a poetry class at the AGO with Lynn Crosbie. Now, she’s enrolled in University of Toronto’s Creative Writing Program, with a focus on poetry, and completed the Poetry Master Class in December, 2014 with Paul Vermeersch. Lisa is an Insurance Professional.
