Starred review from @quillandquire for Homes: A Refugee Story! From reviewer @shenizpoetics: "Both Homes and The Boy on the Beach humanize a conflict that has too often been reduced to numbers, statistics, and nameless victims. The western gaze reduces Syria to an abstraction of civil war, hunger, violence, and conflicting political and religious factions. But these books force the reader to face the complexities of place. In addition to war and suffering, Syria is also a home, a locus of family and memory."

So thrilled to see @quillandquire has made #thisbookbetraysmybrother the coveted ***Editor’s Choice*** in their June issue. 😊💕 “Molope’s prose is exhilarating and she shines in the development of a character that you not only root for, but are desperate to defend”....oooooooooh THANK YOU #quillandquire!!! #yalit #mawenzihouse #ottawawriter #kirkusstar

Hey guys, I finally fixed the post from the third memoir writing workshop session. How to do a research for your memoirs? Aren't you just using your memories?...
LINK IS IN BIO.
😋
Did you know about the difference between #memoirs and #autobiography? I didn't!
“You can write only one autobiography, since you have only one life, but you can write lots of memoirs, because your life is full of events. A memoir is a kind of autobiographic novel, though it is less formal than an autobiography, and it has a different structure,” - more links and sources that will help you are in the post.
😊
All in all, the experience of being taught and evaluated by a writer-at-residence was fantastic. I am so glad libraries in Toronto do it. Also, I just learned (from my new Q&Q) that while we were attending Writing Immigration Memoirs workshops with brilliant #ayelettsabari, my favourite author #trevorcole has been a writer-at-residence at @rhplibrary at the same time. I would be upset, but frankly this library is so far for me, I would probably just make it once to one session about the research (I already wrote about his research for "Hope Makes Love").
💙
QOTD: if you wrote a memoirs, what event of your life would you write about? 😋

"Yuddish for Pirates"
by Gary Barwin.
#canadianauthor 🇨🇦
Like that priest who walked into a bar.
There's a few Inquisition guys playing cardsand they invite him to them.
He asks, "What's the ante?"
"Ten silver pieces," they say.
Priest says, "I'm gonna get burned at those stakes." ©

Another semester gone, likely the last fall one for a long time. Nothing makes a celebration quite like a couple of Christmasy ghost stories and a favourite magazine. 📚🛁

I was honored when @quillandquire asked me to write an essay for their special feature on crime fiction. Even more excited to see it in print! "Fear Factors" is in the November issue. #crimefiction #crimewritersofinstagram #mysterywriters #mysterywritersofinstagram #quillandquire #hilarydavidson #essay #domesticsuspense

Happy Saturday, friends! Rather big potential life changes are happening right now and I'll have spent four days by Monday thinking and stressing about it constantly. At that time I'll see what happens. In these uncertain times though, it's best to have something awesome to read and I have to say I was positively THRILLED over the theme of this month's Q&Q. 🕯🔪🔍#thisisashalloweenasiget #canadareads #quillandquire #mystery #reading #bookstagram
