Shauntay’s poem “Grandmother” is published in The Great Black North: Contemporary African Canadian Poetry (Frontenac House, 2012) and most recently featured as a spoken word recording on her 2014 album release Say Sumthin. Co-produced by Johann Deterville, Say Sumthin has been heralded as “a bona fide listening experience, a remarkable journey” (The Chronicle Herald).
