Junction Reads

This is a love project that started in 2014.

When I first transitioned from writing and performing comedy to writing fiction, I wanted to find a community of writers who I could talk to about new fiction. In Toronto, I used to linger at the back of The Idler, a pub that had an open mic and monthly reading series. There was also reading series on Roncesvalles Ave. for a minute or two and of course the Rowers series was always a favourite. I wanted something in my community, so I started one.

I love poetry, but I felt there were so many series in Toronto supporting poets, I wanted to create a space for prose writers.
