FEATURE WORKSHOP – The Word is Power w/ Karen Connelly
May 11 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Writing as a political act.
Vulnerability paired with strength: this contradiction is a physical truth of all sentient life. For humans, it’s the source of much brilliant creative work. Yet most of our power structures remain based on a distance from the human body and a denial of painful historical truths. Can we write against that distance and that denial? What are the costs and rewards of doing so? Join one of Canada’s most political and most personal writers for this talk and fire-igniting workshop.
