I did have the good fortune to be able to go up myself, and am pleased to report that I took 3rd place.
Last week, I was thrilled to go to my first workshop run by the Kalmunity Vibe Collective. Learning from and working with Jahsun, Fabrice, and Alex was nothing short of revelatory. I cant wait to see how my work develops and in what ways my writing becomes informed by their influence.
Surrounding myself with good art is never a bad investment. Kalmunity's tribute to P-Funk, the AGO in Toronto, Philosofly's fantastic view of Scarface in 1st person, Optimus Rhyme's insomnia... I'm happy as a duck in a pond. This week, Kalmunity Tuesday night and maybe Dark Matter's show at Casa del Popolo Wednesday night, and then I'm headed to the chalet to let it all coalesce.
