Jessica Ruano is a writer of press releases, newspaper articles, romantic emails, blog entries, brochures, academic papers, and – occasionally – of short stories and poetry. She has performed with the Capital Poetry Collective, the Oneness Poetry Collective, Talented Tongues, at a Canteen Gallery Vernissage, and as the feature poet in the Voices of Venus series.
Poem de Terre is a multi-disciplinary ensemble melding live folk music and spoken word with contemporary and more established musical forms. Poem de Terre draws upon many influences to create music for the new millenium. As much as the music, words are central to Poem de Terre’s work, bringing stories and ideas to the community in the form of live performance.
