Author Mercedes Eng has been writing a wonderful series about the DTES for Jacket 2, a literary magazine. twice she has engaged with writing coming from the Collective.
She has taken a close look at the work of two Thursdays Writing Collective authors, Phoenix Winter and Antonette Rea.
Here is a link to her first piece!
She also took a close look at Lisa Robertson’s Occasional Work and Seven Walks from the Office of Soft Architecture (Clear Cut Press 2003; Coach House Books, 2006 & 2010) next to our book The Stanza Project. She situates both as literature of the city, calling them, “critical projects of thinking through and theorizing space via poetry.”
Thank you, Mercedes! We appreciate your reading!
