About this Event


Writing the Sacred

Jónína invites writers to join her interactive workshop and explore the idea of writing the sacred. She notes, "As writers we stand on the threshold – sacred witnesses suspended between what we know and what we don’t know. Together we will lean into the limited space of ‘not knowing’ and explore ways to bring forth writing that can only come if we can learn to listen more deeply to the call to write."

About the Instructor: Jónína Kirton

Jónína Kirton, an Icelandic and Red River Métis poet and citizen of the Métis Nation of B.C., currently lives in New Westminster B.C., the unceded territory of the Halkomelem speaking peoples. She was born in Portage la Prairie, Manitoba, Treaty 1, the traditional lands of the Anishinaabe, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, Dene peoples and the homeland of the Métis. She was 61 when she received the 2016 Vancouver’s Mayor’s Arts Award for an Emerging Artist in the Literary Arts category. Her second collection of poetry, An Honest Woman, was a finalist for the 2018 Dorothy Livesay Poetry Prize. Her third book, Standing in a River of Time, merges poetry and lyrical memoir to take us on a journey exposing the intergenerational effects of colonization on her Métis family. It was released in 2022 to much critical acclaim.
