Things Conjured: Exploring Horror and the Monstrous
Coming Winter 2020
A several month workshop series exploring ghosts, myths and the monstrous in literature. We will read theory, books and poetry that engages with, explores and subverts the notions of monstrosity. Through the course we will work on a long term project you either bring or begin.
Stay tuned for more information.
Registration opens October 2019.
[Now Full - check back for future workshops]
Want to read more but life is In The Way All The Time? Want to write more but can’t make time (I feel you)? Want to hang out with cool people to talk about books, writing, and how we should burn down the patriarchy?
Join this four month Writing Workshop & Book-Club!
Every month you will receive a collection of readings - short stories, a series of poems or some combination thereof. When we meet up we’ll dig into the readings; explore writing prompts so you come away with some new pieces; and provide feedback on any ongoing projects you want work-shopped.
When: March-June; Last Sunday of Every Month
Price: Sliding scale 125-300 (Open to discussion for prices. All proceeds will go to Galloway Defense Fund and Toronto Rape Crises Centre or a charity of your choice.)
Food: I will provide coffee, tea and light snacks and food bits (maybe mimosas).
Accessibility: Unfortunately my apartment is not accessible. There are stairs up to my floor and the bathroom is small for those using mobility devises. In the future I will work to find an accessible space.
What are we reading? You can expect us to cover Charlotte Perkins Gilman; Ann Petry; Shirley Jackson; Virna Sheard; Carmen Maria Machado and others.
General Notes: Please be aware that topics discussed may include gender, violence, sexuality, and patriarchy, among other things. Anonymity is to be respected - what is said at the workshop stays at the workshop.
Due to limited space of my apartment this round is open to 5 people.
