Introductory Reading by MASA TORBICA. She is a PhD candidate at the University of Waterloo (specializing in Canadian literature and rhetoric), and a Fiction Editor at The New Quarterly. She writes in English and Serbian. Her recent work in English appears or is forthcoming in The Puritan, Versal, Understorey, and Qu Literary Magazine. Her second poetry collection in Serbian, titled Atlas, will be published next year.

It took PAMELA MORDECAI 18 years to complete a PhD in English on the poetry of Kamau Brathwaite and Derek Walcott. Brathwaite’s brilliant poem, “Flutes”, in Jah Music, is dedicated to her. She has published six collections of poetry, two entirely in Jamaican Creole. Her debut novel, Red Jacket, in which Jamaican patwa also features, was shortlisted for the Rogers Writers Trust Fiction Prize in 2015. She lives in Kitchener.

LAURIE D. GRAHAM comes from Treaty 6 territory, and she currently lives in Haldimand Treaty territory, where she is a poet, an editor, the publisher of Brick magazine, and a member of the advisory board for the Oskana Poetry & Poetics series. Her first book, Rove, was nominated for the Gerald Lampert Memorial Award, and her second book, Settler Education, was nominated for the Trillium Award for Poetry.

MANREET LACHHAR hails from Brampton, Ontario, and is in her fifth and final year of her English degree. In her third year, she was published in Blueprint Magazine, and liked it so much that she took it over. You'll typically find her with a pencil in one hand and chocolate in the other.

Doors open at 6:30pm, event starts at 7pm. There will be a Q&A session following the readings.

The event is free, and all are welcome. There will be snacks and refreshments. This event is wheelchair accessible.
