Me with my strawberry lemonade at Burgoo Bistro on Main St. in Vancouver on July 12. Photo by Mallory Tater, via the Glamato blog.
I was recently back in Vancouver for two weeks to run some teacher training workshops for BASA (the beloved speech arts school where I used to teach and for which I still design curriculum), and while I was back in my old neighbourhood I ate a lot of ice cream, dipped my toes in the ocean, visited the George C. Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary, toured around Stanley Park, and just tried to soak up as much Vancouver-in-the-summer time as I could.
I also had the pleasure of chatting about feminist literature with the lovely Mallory Tater, who is running Glamato, a new summer-themed interview series. The idea is that Mallory meets up with female-identifying and genderqueer folk of the Can Lit scene and engages them in conversations about inclusion, literature, creativity, and process. And she does so while sipping Caesars on the best patios in Vancouver!
I opted for a strawberry lemonade instead of a Ceasar and thoroughly enjoyed my conversation with Mallory. You can read the full interview (and many more, with other smart folk) over on the Glamato blog.
