Hunt made her poetry performance debut at 14, when she
featured in the CBC Atlantic Airwaves radio-play production of
her children's book Darktalk. She has been published
in two anthologies (The Old Enchanter and Soundings)
and a number of journals, and is the recipient of the Lillian
I Found and George Johnston Prizes for poetry, as well as a repeated
runner-up for the John Newlove Award, and second place winner
of the New Brunswick Writers Federation Award for children's literature.
She is originally
from New Brunswick, and has been performing around Ottawa since
moving here in 1995, at the Dusty Owl Reading Series, the Tree
Reading Series, In/Words, and other open mikes. She has been a
featured reader at several Bywords Quarterly Journal launches,
at the Soundings launch, with the Kymeras at the New Stalgica
reading series, and in a solo show at Voices of Venus, where she
presented her "Chasing Boudicca" cycle of poems, which was then developed into a full-length show with fellow Kymeras Ruthanne
Edward and Marie Bilodeau, and premiered at the Ottawa Storytellers' NAC Fourth
Stage Series in early 2011.
