💥 Some pics from our Saturday Aug 06 gig in Toronto — we did a collaborative reading at the FERTILE FEST‘s Blasted Tree Garden Party in a lovely open barn-garage space behind The Great Escape Book Store (957 Kingston Rd) on a very hot day — we read with Aaron Tucker and Kyle Flemmer, and it was so lovely to see a range of friends from the lit scene and play catch-up … thnx to everyone who came out!
💥 Save the date! We’re happy to be participating in the inaugural FERTILE FEST of New and Inventive Works in Poetry in Toronto, reading at an outdoor event on Sat Aug 06 beginning at 3pm (our first in-person reading since the pandemic began) …
BLASTED TREE GARDEN PARTY — Sat Aug 06, 3pm — at The Great Escape Book Store (957 Kingston Rd, Toronto) — featuring: Kyle Flemmer, Aaron Tucker w/ Leslie Joy Ahenda [launching The Republic of Home] and MA|DE
This Sun Nov 14 at 2pm, we’re presenting a FREE workshop called ‘Approaches to Collaboration’ as part of 2021 VERSeFest Ottawa … please join us (on ZOOM) if you want to learn more about collaborative writing!
… Register N-O-W at 💥 versefest.ca 💥 to get a seat at the head of the class 🙂
Thnx to everyone who attended yesterday’s BY THE RIVER lunchtime ZOOM reading — it was great to share the virtual stage with Karl Jirgens who performed some outrageous & literate works; both MA|DE members focused exclusively on presenting their solo works for this particular event, due to a time crunch we tabled our collaborative work, but hopefully we’ll read at this series again at some point in the future!
👁 For those who missed it, the reading is available in its entirety now at the BY THE RIVER READINGS YouTube channelhere
This Wed Apr 14, let’s do lunch: both members of MA|DE are doing solo readings of recent work (as well as a set of collaborative poems, of course) — and Karl Jirgens (of RAMPIKE fame) is also on the bill!
BY THE RIVER READING SERIES, 12:30pm via ZOOM … join us!
