Poetry is a gateway. It allows us to make connections and find meaning in mystery. In this workshop, we will wake up our poetic senses, begin to generate a sustainable and fulfilling writing practice, and embrace self-expression. This workshop is open to artists, writers, playwrights, actors, or anyone interested in picking up a writing practice. No need to have studied poetry or writing in any formal capacity.

Kit, or kitchen, is a transmasculine nonbinary poet, playwright, performer, and publisher living on the unceded territories of the Squamish, Musqueam, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations. They are currently pursuing a Master of Publishing degree at Simon Fraser University. They won the George McWhirter Prize of Poetry in 2020, and were shortlisted for Peach Mag’s GOLD in Poetry Prize in 2019. Their poems have appeared or are forthcoming in Plenitude, Poetry, Room, Peach Mag, Poetry is Dead, The Puritan, and Bad Nudes. Their debut chapbook I NEED NOT BE GOOD was released in February 2022 with Rahila’s Ghost Press, and they most recently performed in Geordie Theatre’s adaptation of Kai Cheng Thom’s book, From The Stars In The Sky To The Fish In The Sea, at the Centaur Theatre in Montreal in May 2022.
