This will be great. I love Alex and Amber’s work, and Elee puts brilliant events together. From the page (link to FB event below):
Guest authors Amber Dawn and Alex Leslie join Thursdays Writing Collective to read from LETTERING, a year-long project.
Both authors will be reading a letter they wrote to Thursdays Writing Collective and hearing, for the first time, individual responses from Collective participants who used those letters as seeds for new work. You may read Amber Dawn and Alex’s letters at http://www.thursdayswritingcollective.ca/lettering/
All are welcome to this free event. Accessiblity details are below this description. Light snacks will be served.
Thursdays Writing Collective is comprised of 150 activists, academics, slam poets, novelists and storytellers who explore issues of self-determination through creative writing. The Collective holds free, drop-in writing sessions in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside at Carnegie Community Centre. Founded in 2008 by Elee Kraljii Gardiner, the Collective has published six chapbooks and performs at festivals, literary events and readings. Our latest publication, The Stanza Project (Otter Press 2013), is available at Pulp Fiction Books.www.thursdayswritingcollective.ca
