Happy if You Know It
Happy If You Know It is a collection of poetry, fiction, confessional writing, art and photography that tackles the question, “What does it mean to trust our intuition?”
This beautiful book is 8.5 x 5.5 and 148 pages. Includes colour artwork and a pull-out colour poster by artist Margaux Williamson titled "How To Be A Villain."
Not your typical self-help book, this anthology relies on personal experience and exploration rather than facts, figures, or Instagrammable affirmations. There are no actionable steps, no checklists. Instead, this book features personal, revelatory contributions from 15 different women including Toronto muralist and artist Ness Lee, long-established painter and filmmaker Margaux Williamson, celebrated writer/musician Vivek Shraya and Rogers Writers’ Trust 2017 Fiction Prize shortlister Carleigh Baker.
Other (remarkable!) contributors and collaborators include: Najla Nubyanluv, Anne Thériault, Vasiliki Marapas, Frankie Barnet, Lauren Tamaki,Alexandra Bowman, Jill Andrew, Aisha Fairclough, Hollie Pocsai, Liz Worth, Tania Love, Sam Pierre, Dae, Jen Spinner, Angela Lewis, Erin Pehlivan, and Erin Klassen.
