Her poetry and essays have appeared in Camas, and Poems Across the Big Sky. In 2007, she and several other Montana writers formed the traveling poetry troupe Bentgrass, which tours the state performing poetry and music, and hosting writing workshops. In 2008, they received a grant from Humanities Montana for their “On East” tour to the small ranching towns of eastern Montana where, among other honors, they were invited to tour a longhorn cattle operation, stay the night at the mayor's house, and attend northeastern Montana's “Schmeckfest,” a Mennonite sausage eating party. Bentgrass Poetry Troupe has self-published two volumes of poetry, Windfall Season (2007) and Night Corn (2010). Cedar Brant unpacks her bags in Missoula.
Hear Brant talk about her unusual childhood and her experiences with Bentgrass, and read a few poems during The Write Question, Thursday evening, June 16, at 6:30 (YPRadio.org) or 7:30 (MTPR.org).
