‘Approaches to Collaboration’ Post-Workshop Shout-Outs!

Thank-you to everyone who attended yesterday: we LOVED doing our ‘APPROACHES TO COLLABORATION’ Workshop for VERSeFest Ottawa — it was a great opportunity to look at what we do, how it overlaps and differs with other collaborative projects, and to put some terms to the various approaches one can take …

… many thanks to Monty Reid, Avonlea Fotheringham, Stephen Brockwell & Vivian Vavassis of VERSeFest for all the behind-the-scenes help; to Manahil Bandukwala and Tom Prime for making special appearances during our presentation and discussing their own experiences with collaborations; and to Lee Parpart, John Oughton, Renee Sgroi, Carol A Stephen & Veronique Boyer for the great questions during the Q & A period!

BY THE RIVER Apr 2021 Reading: now on Youtube

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 channel here
