Three Upcoming Events, October 2023
I'm so excited to get to read and interview an author whose work I love this month :)
It's been a little while, but I'm so excited to get to share and preview new writing and also to talk about writing!
On Thursday Oct 19th, I'll be at Queen Books,at 914 Queen St E, from 6-8pm with the wonderful Wayne Ng.
Wayne wrote an incredible novel, called the Family Code, and I'll get to interview him about his writing process, this moving novel, his future projects and more. I'll also get to read an excerpt from my upcoming Guernica Editions short story collection, Things that Cause Inappropriate Happiness. Come see two Guernica authors read and talk about writing <3
On Oct 23rd, I'll be reading virtually as part of The Voices International anthology launch.
I submitted, for the first time in my life, a poem called Chaim Sheli (my life, in Hebrew. It was originally a short story that didn't quite work, so I tried a prose poem/free verse style and I'm really delighted that it was accepted for publication.
One of the most exciting things about doing my The University of Guelph Creative Writing MFA was the chance to challenge ourselves to write in different mediums, outside our comfort zones. (I took a class some of the most brilliant poets in Canada, and boy was I intimidated. But I don't think I ever would have tried this otherwise.
There are so many great poets reading. It starts at 11:00 am. You can register for the event here:
On Weds Oct 25th, I'll be reading at Palmerston Library, 560 Palmerston Avenue from 7:00-8:30
