Fortner Anderson is known for the performances of his poems. He reads a cappella and has been an active member of the Montreal spoken-word scene for years prior to the common use of the term "spoken-word".
Fortner was a co-founder and a producer with the audio publishing venture Wired On Words. He participated in the development of the Ultimatum II Urban Poetry Festival of 1985. He is the host of a radio show, Dromostexte, a one-hour show which plays only poems and spoken word recordings, heard each week on CKUT-FM. Past projects include: The Odyssey, an itinerant software, Montreal's Dial-A-Poem service, and Oralpalooza the Montreal spin-off from the Lollapalooza shows; the "Outloud Live" at the PanCanadian Wordfest in Calgary, Alberta and dozens of poetry readings and festivals in Quebec, with the occasional foray to Toronto, Vancouver, and New York.
Fortner's poems have been recorded on the Wired On Words compilation (WOW, 1993), Millennium Cabaret (WOW, 1998) et La Vache Enragée (Planète Rebelle, 1998), and have been published in Poetry Nation (Vehicule Press, 1998). His own CD sometimes I think appeared in 2000 (WOW).
