Shannon Bramer is Canadian playwright and poet who writes books for human beings of all ages. She is the author of suitcases and other poems (winner, Hamilton and Region Best Book Award), scarf, The Refrigerator Memory, Precious Energy, and Climbing Shadows: Poems for Children, illustrated by Cindy Derby. Her plays have appeared in juried festivals across Canada, among them: New Ideas (Toronto), the Women’s Work Festival (St. John’s), and Sarasvàti FemFest (Winnipeg). Most of Shannon's work for the stage was workshopped/developed in St.John’s, Newfoundland, thanks to the Women’s Work Festival, where she has returned with a new script-in-progress four times since 2009. TRAPSONGS: three plays, was published in December 2020, by Bookhug Press (Toronto, Canada) when all theatres were dark.

MORE ABOUT ME
When I'm not writing I'm having an intense conversation with my seventeen-year-old daughter, picking up my son's lego, or making something vegetarian in a hurry for my middle child who is late for dance.
WHAT I'M WORKING ON
I'm working on an absurd comedy about two adult siblings who are delayed at the airport by an excessively scrutinizing airport security agent who won't let them go anywhere until they are able to properly explain why they are going.
