Symposium, Reimagined

Happy holidays! I’ve just added a page for a project that I’m very, very excited about. Carrie Jenkins and I are writing a book together, reimagining Plato’s Symposium in a hybrid poetry/fiction format. You’ll find our own versions of the speeches of the text – of Phaedrus, of Aristophanes, of Diotima, etc – as inspired by Tarot cards, outer space, a love affair between Sappho and Medusa, and much more. We’re holding a workshop at UBC on April 27, 2018 to share a draft of the book. Join us if you’ll be in the area and would like to read & discuss the manuscript! Details at the workshop link above. xo
