Hot Takes: Cason Sharpe & Faith Arkorful

Thursday, October 29, 4 pm

Using close looking skills and visual vernacular, Hot Takes is an analysis of popular images in the media where we invite creatives, artists and thinkers to discuss one image to decipher and better understand our current cultural and social moment. This week join writers Cason Sharpe and Faith Arkorful in a conversation about a compelling contemporary image of their choosing.

Faith Arkorful has had her poetry published in GUTS Magazine, Peach Mag, PRISM International, Hobart Pulp, Koffler.Digital, The Puritan, and Canthius Magazine, amongst other places. She was a semi-finalist in the 2019 92Y Discovery Poetry Contest and was shortlisted for the 2019 CBC Poetry Prize. She is currently working on a novella. Faith was born in Toronto, where she still resides.

Cason Sharpe is a writer currently based in Toronto. His fiction and criticism has appeared and is forthcoming in Canadian Art, C Magazine, Public Parking, Cleo Journal, Guts Canadian Feminist Magazine, Brick, PRISM International, and the Hart House Review, among others. His first collection of stories, Our Lady of Perpetual Realness, was published by Metatron Press in 2017. Named a Queer Writer to Watch by THIS Magazine, Cason has presented work at the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Vancouver Art Book Fair, the Prarie Art Book Fair, and the Hamilton Film Festival. He is currently at work on a book of experimental criticism in the form of epistolary nonfiction.
