All are welcome to join Artspeak in celebrating the launch of these publications:

 Glue by Claire Geddes Bailey, 
Swan Dives by Kiel Torres, 
A Lot by Christian Vistan
, Liminal Ziplock by Emma Metcalfe Hurst, 
Stop Wincing/We’re Fine by Cristina Holman.

Over the past ten months, the Studio for Emerging Writers have been running weekly/bi-weekly workshops, with occasional site visits, discussions, meals, walks, edits, bus and boat rides, readings, and hang-outs. During this time together, we brewed a cider alongside a set of five chapbooks, each written by a participant of the Studio. 

Publications and refreshments will be available for sale. 
Special thanks to Sheryda Warrener, Stephan Garneau and Erica Wilk. 
Bios for the participants can be found here.
