Welcome to here
Grab a chair, pop a squat, mind the cacti
This is The Forlorn Prairie Queer Review, a newsletter about Trans Albertan thoughts on Art, Teaching, Culture and hopeless garbage.
I started this newsletter because, despite calling myself a writer, I’ve never really written for myself. I’m not sure why that is, though it might have something to do with my values around not working for free. It may also have something to do with the sheer hopelessness generated by the effect of being both an artist AND a writer has on both your bank account, social life and (likely) meager level of sanity. Regardless of it’s reason, I’ve felt entirely disconnected from something which I value as extremely important: writing for writing’s sake.
Before we begin, I need to ask that you, reader dearest, avoid expecting anything too consistent from this page beyond a 9 AM Friday drop every week. This entire thing is provisional. It might even get healthily fucked up; I can’t know for sure and neither can you. It’s all part of the fun of watching someone trying to speak!
I’m glad you’re here though, and I have to say it’s so nice to see you.
