LA Warman is a New York-based writer, teacher, and musician whose literary work has been propelled into the cult classics with their first novel, Whore Foods. The book consists of a series of vignettes that bring to life the sexual encounters of a grocery store employee and question the nature of sexual transactions. Whore Foods was awarded the Lambda Literary Award, which recognizes the crucial role LGBTQ writers play in shaping the world. In Warman’s second novel, Dust, two lovers with the mystical power to transcend death traverse a desert which has taken over most of the American continent.
In LA’s work, humour, lust, death, and bodily fluids intertwine to reinvent the definition of contemporary erotica. LA is also the founder and principal of the Warman School, where they have been teaching online writing classes since 2017. The online classes are centered around topics such as death, poetry, and erotica.
On December 16th LA will come to Passa Porta to guide a group of 15 students through a hands-on literary workshop. The workshops typically come from a place of unknowing, no prior experience is required. The class is open to people that are interested in creative work in any genre and students will be encouraged to create from sensation and feeling rather than skill. The class will include generative writing activities, movement activities, and will create a space for discussion.
The workshop is the follow up to Warman’s book presentation with Clara Pacotte that will take place in the *rile bookshop on December 14th.
