*Update: *Update: Due to unfortunate and unforeseen travel-related circumstances, Safiya won’t be able to make the opener. In happier news, Natalie Wee has kindly stepped in. Can’t wait to see you all!
Pivot’s season opener brings a new accessible venue (Tranzac Club’s Tiki Room) and a trio of writers we can’t believe we were lucky enough to book. Come early – with Natalie Wee, Lynn Crosbie and Allison LaSorda kicking off the 17/18 season it maaaay just be a sell-out. ✨
Lynn Crosbie is the author of _The Corpses of the Future_ (Anansi, 2017.)
It is a collection of poems named by, and about, her father’s serious illness.
She has written other collections, most recently, _Liar_ in 2009.
A novelist and Ph.D—who has taught at the AGO, the University of Toronto, SisterWrites and OCAD university—she is making a very slow, lateral move to photography.
Allison LaSorda holds an MFA from the University of Guelph and has received residency scholarships from the Banff Centre for the Arts and Creativity and the Vermont Studio Center. Her writing appears in publications like PRISM international, Shenandoah, The Fiddlehead, Hazlitt, and others. Her first book, Stray, was published by icehouse poetry / Goose Lane Editions in 2017. She is currently at work on a short story collection.
