Join Toronto writers Therese Estacion and Charlie Petch for an evening of poetry and conversation. Their debut collections are an intimate portrayal and exploration of disability, gender and identity. Estacion’s Phantompains is a visceral, surreal collection dealing with loss and grief, inspired by Filipino horror and folktales, Petch’s Why I Was Late fuses text and performance to a decades long trans/masculine coming-of-age story, finding heroes in unexpected places. With beautiful prose and humour, these poets hold nothing back.
