Event description

Description

In this writing workshop by and for femmes at the margins, we will read writing by femme writers and creators and write on femme ancestors, communities, bodies, lives, homes, sexualities, relationships and survival. Born out of my love for femmes and femme writing, thinking and world-making, and my desire to say fuck you to every gender studies course that just talks about masculinity, we will study writing by queer femmes thriving, surviving and gifting genius at multiple margins. This workshop is open to folks who identify as queer femmes, across the gender spectrum, and centres Black, Indigenous and/or of colour/disabled/trans, intersex and gender nonconforming/fat/sex working/ poor and working class, and otherwise marginalized femmes.

Instructor: Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha
Venue: Native Education College
Date: Saturday, March 16, 10:30am – 1:00pm
Cost: $15
