The Fiddlehead is coming to Toronto! We'll be hosting an Introductory Spoken Word Workshop — "The Ecology of Story: Writing with Mother Earth" 3pm-5:30pm, in room MW130 on the University of Toronto Scarborough Campus, with spoken word artists Sheniz Janmohamed and Mahlikah Awe:ri Enml'ga't Saqama'sgw (The Woman Who Stands and Walks In The Light).
Later that evening, there will be an Open Mic at 7:30pm in room MW130 (workshop participants are encouraged, though not obligated, to perform!) featuring performances by Sheniz and Mahlikah on the theme of "Ecology."
The University of New Brunswick invites you to a literary reading by Phoebe Wang at 7:30 pm on Tuesday, March 19th at the Alumni Building Lounge on the Fredericton Campus.
Phoebe Wang is a poet and educator currently living in Toronto. Wang’s work explores the intersection between material and psychic geographies. Her poems engage in a kind of fieldwork, surveying gardens, communities, and the paradoxes of subsumed histories. With understated irony and unsettling imagery, her poems address the internal conflicts inherent in contemporary living.
