I am having THE BEST time leading a writing workshop at Parkdale Library.We’re exploring Parkdale, and the city through words and holy smokes is it inspiring. Every Wednesday evening I get to hang out with such engaged, wonderful people and write and write and write about the places we live.

- The Toronto poetry map (Man, I love this project!): With the help of Toronto’s fourth poet laureate George Elliott Clarke, the Toronto Public Library created a new way to explore the city through poetry.
- Shawn Micallef’s book Stroll: Psychogeographic Walking Tours of Toronto
- The Urban Geographer, Daniel Rotsztain’s, projects including All the Libraries and All the Historic Sites
