STUDIO FOR EMERGING WRITERS
March 22, 2017
Artspeak’s Inaugural Studio for Emerging Writers is excited to present brand new work by Alysa Hullett, Julia Dahee Hong, Vanessa Grondin and Keagan Perlette.
This launch features four publications showcasing the writing that emerged from the nine-month studio program.
Titled “Lexical” (Vanessa Grondin), “Tiny Alligator” (Alysa Hullett), “A Reasonable Request” (Julia Dahee Hong) and “Prayers & Blasphemies” (Keagan Perlette), the four chapbooks bend the genres of poetry and prose in response to an ongoing exploration of the intersections of visual art and writing.
You are invited to join us for an evening of revelry and reading, with a performance video installation by Vanessa Grondin and embroideries by Keagan Perlette.
Artspeak gratefully acknowledges the BC Arts Council Youth Engagement program for their support of this initiative.
We acknowledge that the practices of this studio and this event is being hosted on the unceded ancestral territory of the Musqueam people.
