This Month: Overcoming Isolation with the Cartonera Collective

How do we disrupt the notion of writing as a solitary, anguished pursuit? How can writing and writing-adjacent work foster deeper connections, mutual nourishment, and community (re)formation?

Join the members of the Cardboard House Press Cartonera Collective for a bilingual English-Spanish conversation on collaboration, community building, and cross-cultural literary work at Get Lit on Thursday, December 3, 2020 from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Arizona time on Zoom.

The facilitators will also be available to share their reflections on the Cartonera movement, community-based book production, and collaborative translation. Wannabes, self-questioners, and late-bloomers welcome!

Please note: while this event is free and open to the public, you must register through Eventbrite to receive the Zoom link. Space is first-come, first-served. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. Attendance may be capped at 30 guests in order to allow everyone the opportunity to speak. Registrations do not guarantee or reserve seats. The Zoom link will be sent two days and two hours before the meeting.

Este mes: Superando el aislamiento con Cartonera Collective

¿Cómo trastornar la noción de que escribir es un acto solitario y angustiado? ¿Cómo promueven la escritura y sus labores adyacentes conexiones más profundas, sustento mutuo, y la (re)formación comunitaria?

Únete a una conversación bilingüe con integrantes de Cartonera Collective de Cardboard House Press acerca de colaborar, crear comunidad, y la labor literaria transcultural. Únete Get Lit en el jueves 3 de diciembre de 2020, de 7PM a 8PM hora local de Arizona, via Zoom

Les facilitadores también compartirán sus reflexiones acerca del movimiento Cartonero, la producción de libros en comunidad y la traducción colaborativa. ¡Aspirantes, auto-dudantes, aficionades tardíes, todes bienvenides!
