Bio



Kaie Kellough is a novelist, poet, and sound performer. His work emerges at a crossroads of social engagement and formal experiment. From western Canada, he lives in Montréal and has roots in Guyana, South America.

His books include Dominoes at the Crossroads (short fiction, Véhicule 2020) longlisted for the Scotiabank Giller Prize, and Magnetic Equator (poetry, McClelland and Stewart 2019) winner of the Griffin Poetry Prize. His novel Accordéon (ARP, 2016) was a finalist for the Amazon/Walrus Foundation First Novel Award. 

Kaie’s vocal performance, recorded audio, and electronic narrative explore migration and the suspension of arrival. Since 2011 he has created mixed media compositions with saxophonist and synthesist Jason Sharp. 

Kaie’s work has traveled internationally, notably to festivals in the UK, Australia, Asia, the Caribbean, and continental Europe. He continues to craft new passages.
