Bringing together female poets from diverse backgrounds to share the stage, Women Who Write is an event that allows Toronto women to experience the true spectrum of female writing, and the how individual experiences shape art. Israeli poet Gili Haimovich, renaissance woman Pheobe Tsang, who lives in Toronto, grew up in England, and was born in Hong Kong, and exiled Mexican poet-activist Emma Beltran will read from their works, and create a dialogue emphasizing where they, as artists, come together, and where they split apart. This evening is bound to be an intriguing exploration of labels, expectations, and gender. What does it mean to be a female poet? Stop by Toronto Women’s Bookstore on January 20th to find out.
