POETS ON THE TANGIBILITY OF LIVING
On Sunday, September 27th, I will take part in an 11:00am WOTS session with poets Sachiko Murakami (Render), and Randy Lundy (Field Notes for the Self). Join us, as we traverse a series of befores and afters, experiencing the darknesses of life and exploring what comes after. This event will be moderated by Kirby of Knife | Fork | Book.
I do hope you’ll join our livestream. Here’s the tentative youtube address for the event: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MfiqbSgi8x0&feature=youtu.be&ab_channel=TheWordOnTheStreetToronto
Our session is co-sponsored by the Kingston Writers’ Fest, with closed captioning provided by Anansi/Groundwood.
