Since the mid-March, I’ve spent Monday nights leading a writing workshop with the most inspiring, generous group of writers at High Park Library. We met each week and wrote about our city, the neighbourhood of Parkdale-High Park, creating characters, and reading poems about the neighbourhood, as winter turned into spring, turned into almost-summer.
On our final night, we ate chocolate cake and piles of chips and shared our work, cheering on each others’ characters and wondering where they’ll end up. What a privilege it was. I had such an incredible time.
I am so grateful to the Ontario Arts Council for funding and High Park Library at the Toronto Public Library for support. And for the inspiring writers who showed up week after week. Thank you.
