Difficult People author Catriona Wright will be a part of this year’s Canzine extravaganza in Toronto. From 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. at the AGO, she’ll be running a Drop-In Dating Profiles workshop. Drop by to create a dating profile for your favourite difficult person (fictional, historical or made up) and chat with other difficult people looking for love in a difficult world.
What are you most excited about for this year’s Canzine?
Catriona: I’m most excited to browse all the tables and go way over my budget buying fabulous Canadian zines. This year is my first time with a table at Canzine, so I’m also excited to share my new book, Difficult People, and new chapbooks from Desert Pets Press, a Canadian micropress that I co-run with Emma Dolan, with the public.
What can folks look forward to about your part of the all-day zine workshop?
During my workshop, you’ll get a chance to delve deep into the idea of a “difficult” person to create a unique and complex character (and hopefully have a few laughs along the way!).
