Reading at SPINLAW 2014Last Saturday I had the honour of reading at the York University Osgoode Hall Law School conference SPINLAW (Student Public Interest Network Legal Action Workshop) for the second year in a row!

For SPINLAW 2013 I read a poem commissioned by SPINLAW: Spreading The Roots Of The Living Tree. I take great pride in my first commissioned poem being read, and well received, at a social justice conference.

This year I read an essay about the second time I was incarcerated, The Bull Pen, and a letter from me to my deceased friend, former Osgoode Hall student, Wendy Babcock.  The audience enjoyed both!

BIG thanks to the SPINLAW 2014 team:

Darcel Bullen, Jennifer Brown, Richard E Lanns, Emily Meuser, Juan de Villa, and Alison Mintoff.

And thanks Lorne Sossin, Dean of Osgoode Hall Law School.
