In Profile: poet laureate Nisha Patel


CKUA super-intern Scott Zielsdorf has spent the last four months sharing conversations with arts and culture makers who call Alberta home.

In honour of the last week of his internship, Scott joined Grant Stovel during the Thursday, April 29, 2021 episode of Alberta Morning to talk about the value of his experience on our arts and culture team.

He also presented a follow-up conversation with Edmonton-based poet laureate Nisha Patel, whom he spoke with in January of 2021. Released on paperback earlier this month, Scott spoke with Nisha about her debut poetry collection Coconut.
