A Couple of Great Workshops at TWB

Just a quick blog entry to let you know about two great workshops that are happening at The Toronto Women’s Bookstore next month:

JANUARY 2007 courses @ TWB 1. Bisexuality: Exploring the Issues with Cheryl Dobinson (Mondays) 2. Anthology Incubator: From Pitch to Print with instructor-facilitator Anna Camilleri (Tuesdays)

I’m big fans of both women, and the work of each have had major effects on the redefinition of the feminist community at large. Camilleri has been involved in a variety of fab femme projects and produced some of the finest anthologies investigating the queer femme identity, including Red Light: Superheroes, Saints and Sluts and Brazen Femme: Queering Femininity - why not learn the ins and outs of creating an anthology from the best? Dobinson is a bisexual writer, researcher and advocate. In October 2003 she began co-facilitating “Fluid” - a new group for bisexual, bi-curious, pansexual, genderqueer, questioning and other queer youth who don’t fit neatly into categories, through Toronto’s Supporting Our Youth community development initiative.

While I’m here, I also thought I’d mention that feminist press McGilligan Books is back with a vengeance this season, with three fantastic new releases that continue its mandate. Of particular note is Tara-Michelle Ziniuk’s Emergency Contact

“Emergency Contact reckons with social, political and cultural violations of the body familial dysfunction, mental illness, poverty, addiction, gender and sexual politics, and romance gone awry.”

‘Tis the season for gender and sexual politics…
