Looking forward

I was happy to see that my book, The things I heard about you, is on The Quill & Quire’s most anticipated poetry book list for this fall season. I’m looking forward to the new books by Lisa Robertson & Patrick Lane, two of my favourite writers.

This summer, the Frank theatre company has been running a series of writing workshops in downtown Vancouver for self-identified queer, trans*, Two Spirit and questioning youth. These workshops are free and open to youth at all stages of exploring their writing. This Tuesday I’m the guest artist at the weekly workshop — I’ll be talking about publishing and doing a few exercises. You can find more info about the workshops here.

And this Sunday there’s the poetry reading responding to the work of Chief Dan George — I am glad to be reading with a group of writers involved in local social justice and environmental issues. All info about that reading is here.
