*CWILA is a national organization called Canadian Women in the Literary Arts. It seeks equality for women, transgender, and genderqueer authors, reviewers, and readers in Canada.
Lucas is CWILA’s Critic-in-Residence for 2015 and Shannon was our 2014 Critic-in-Residence. This position was created by CWILA in response to a proven gender gap in Canada’s reviewing culture – to encourage more women and transgender writers to review books and engage in public critical conversations about writing in Canada. The event will showcase the incredible poetic talent of these two writers and also engage in a discussion about barriers to equity in Canadian literary culture.
