Dagmar tells the truth. Honest. Real. She gives hopeful ideas that can transform! Dagmar uses scripture with contemporary reference and power.
- Danielle Strickland
"Her patience, dedication, attention to detail,
and honest feedback are the signs of a
true educator and a talented artist.
I am so proud to have had the
opportunity to learn from her [and to share
space with her]. Without Dagmar, I never
would have won the BAM! Youth Slam two
times in a row.

"[Dagmar] helps you fulfill your potential in poetry and challenges you to reach untapped writing. Thank you Dagmar, for being a guide for me and creatively developing the way I think through poetry.”
"Working with such a talented artist like Dagmar was a fulfilling
experience that opened my eyes
to spoken word and the
immense power that words
can hold. This workshop demonstrated to me that I didn't have to be afraid of writing 'bad poetry'. I now recognize that we all have a little poet within us.

- Paul Yoon, Fluid Youth Conference
"Our hope was that her piece would
be inspiring, challenging and hit
all the right notes based on that
year’s conference theme. She did not disappoint! Her performance was everything we hoped for and it turned out to be one of our favourite openers at Fluid.”
I am left speechless after that
workshop. This is what true art does: heals and inspires.

The first time I saw Dagmar present one of her pieces, I was quite literally brought to tears. You can tell every word she writes is from the core of who she is and her life experiences. That's why she connects with her audience so well. She peaks directly to their hearts.
Dagmar Morgan is a poet of the real, exploring the tribulations of modern life with candour, tenderness and an unflinching faith. Her poems sing with a fierce, unapologetic determination. Like all poets of substance, she is unafraid to contend with the BIG subjects with a keen eye for detail and a deep sensitivity to the contradictions and complexities of the human heart.
