Workman Arts is pleased to co-host an afternoon of talking all things publishing, process & craft with author Shannon Quin on February 9th from 2:00 – 3:00 PM EST on Zoom. Shannon will be reading from her new collection, Mouthful of Bees, which is an exploration of Quinn’s own experience as someone who both uses and provides mental health and addiction services. The collection moves between personal, communal and mythical experiences of madness to obliterate the idea that recovery is a tidy or linear event and challenges us to welcome resilience in all of its’ messy and awkward iterations.
Mouthful of Bees (Mansfield Press) is Quinn’s third collection of poetry. Her second collection, Nightlight for Children of Insomniacs, was shortlisted for the Relit Award. Quinn lives in Dish with One Spoon Territory (Toronto).
