Catherine Hernandez is an award winning writer and performer. She is a twice published playwright and the author of the Flamingo Rampant Press children's book titled M is for Mustache: A Pride ABC Book. Her first novel, Scarborough, was just published by Arsenal Pulp Press.

Allan Briesmaster is a poet, publisher and freelance editor who has been active in the Toronto literary scene for many years. Books he has edited have won or been short-listed for several national awards. His poems have appeared in numerous journals and anthologies, and he has given readings and talks and led workshops in venues from Victoria to St. John’s. His most recent full-length books are Against the Flight of Spring (2013) and River Neither (2015). He lives in Thornhill, just north of Toronto.

Both Shab-e She’r and St-Stephen-in-the Fields strongly support freedom of expression and encourage our features and open-mic’ers to use any language they wish.
This event is partially sponsored by St-Stephen-in-the Fields Church.
St-Stephen-in-the Fields accessibility information:
The venue has a wheelchair ramp entrance and is all on one level; however, the wheelchair ramp door does not yet have a push button, so someone needs to hold the door open. There is one fully barrier-free washroom.

All washrooms are gender-neutral.
