Couplets is a series of one-of-a-kind collaborations that bridge the gap between literary arts (poetry, fiction, and nonfiction) and other art forms. Each event is conceived, curated, and created by a writer/artist pairing over a month and then presented for a single night.

Event admission is PWYC. All proceeds go to the collaborators.

Series 2

Couplets seeks expressions of interest for its second series of literary & artistic collaborations, beginning in K'jipuktuk / Halifax in 2021.

Couplets is open to established, emerging, and new writers & artists living in or traveling to K'jipuktuk / Halifax. Event details are determined by each writer-artist pair. Previous Couplets collaborations have

  • revisited and renewed existing work;

  • incorporated new response works and co-creations;

  • included collaborative performance, improvisation, and conversation;

  • and brought together literary arts with a broad range of other forms (e.g., music, sound art, comedy, theatre, performance art, painting, comic art, animation, film, and yarn bombing).

For consideration by the Couplets Matchmaking Robot, please email your bio, 3+ writing/artwork samples, your author/artist website (if applicable), and any initial questions to
