Canzine Ottawa 2019 Programming

Drop-in Workshop: These Are Not the Beasts of My Youth 

Using visual and written prompts, poet Matthew Walsh (These Are Not the Potatoes of My Youth) and short story writer J.R. McConvey (Different Beasts) invite participants to write a postcard to their favourite “beast” (real or imagined). Take the card home or add it to the “Wall of Beasts”). For all ages! Signed books by both authors available at the event. Presented with Goose Lane Editions, Canada’s oldest independent publisher.

J.R. McConvey‘s stories have been shortlisted for the Journey Prize, the Bristol Short Story Prize, and the Matrix Lit Pop award. His work has appeared in the Malahat Review, Joyland, EVENT, the Puritan, the New Quarterly, carte blanche, filling Station, and the Feathertale Review. He is the winner of the 2016 Jack Hodgins Founders’ Award for Fiction. Different Beasts is his first book.

Matthew Walsh released their debut poetry collection under the whimsical title These are not the potatoes of my youth in 2019. The book offers a confessional chronicle of Walsh’s upbringing in rural Nova Scotia and then meanders across the country as the poet explores their queer identity with humour, surprise and frankness. Walsh has previously contributed poetry to publications like The Malahat Review and Arc. They are now based in Toronto.
