Sean Zio is a graduate of English literature. In his performances of poetry, he aims to bring out the best in each piece’s rhythm, beat and metre, whether he is reciting his own or another’s work. He has been performing since 2004 and has participated in many forms of poetry competitions, showcases and open mics before finding his home with the Kymeras.

As a Kymera, he contributes as a spoken word artist and an all-around lover of a good poem. In the community at large, Zio runs a weekly, open-membership creative writing group called The Creative Writing Play Date. He also helps organize Ottawa’s annual craft and zine fair, Ravenswing.
