About

Ken Belford

Ken Belford
Ken Belford, the “self-educatedLan(d)guage” poet, has said that living for decades in the “back country” has afforded him a unique relationship to language that rejects the colonial impulse to write about nature but attempts to write from nature and our relationship to the land.

Currently living in Prince George, BC, he continues to write outside the boundaries of the conventional forms espoused by what he calls the “tribal schools” of poetry. His six previous books of poetry are Fireweed, The Post Electric Caveman, Pathways into the Mountains, lan(d)guage, when snakes awaken and Ecologue.
