Our last reader feature for today’s launch is Larissa Lai. Fragments from her work-in-progress Maenad Martyr appear in antilang. Through the lens of affect, this project engages with the issues impacting Turtle Island literatures with the hope that playing with language will create “new and better ruptures.”
Larissa is the author of five books, with a sixth, The Tiger Flu, forthcoming. A CRCII in Creative Writing at the University of Calgary, she directs The Insurgent Architects’ House for Creative Writing.
