Zach Polis was first obsessed with animals and then found himself pulled into the worlds of poetry and filmmaking. Now, as St. Albert’s Poet Laureate, he is an ambassador of culture and looks to promote other artists in the province. In this conversation we also talk about being a zookeeper, performing Shakespeare soliloquies, and Paddington Bear.
