Yvette Doucette is a poet and mom who lives and works on Prince Edward Island. She is the owner of a communications, content editing, and project management company called Red Clay Productions. Among other venues, Yvette has performed her poetry at The Guild, the now defunct Marketplace and the Reading Well Bookstore, on Victoria Row as part of the summer Jazz and Poetry on the street series organized by Richard Lemm, and as part of two CBC Poetry Face-offs.
Yvette is a member of WWW, a writing group with nine vibrant, dynamic, gifted women writers who are a constant inspiration in life and word. She is also fortunate to facilitate an after-school program with some very talented students at Bluefield High School (organized through teacher-librarian Richard Baker and the PEI Writers’ Guild). She is a member of the Peake Street Studio Collective and had a poem that got eaten at the One True Thingshow.
Yvette Doucette lives in Charlottetown in an orange house, with big, elegant elms in the back yard and a beautiful perennial garden in the front. She shares house with her children Uma and Mathurin, and her husband Mark, who are happy to eat her poems whenever they get the chance.
