OnWords Conference: Writing Your Region

 —  —

Four Points by Sheraton, 1496 Hollis Street, Halifax

The saying goes “write what you know,” but writing about your region presents a host of challenging questions. How do you bring familiar surroundings to life on the page? What assumptions exist about your city, province, or territory, and how do they influence what you write? How do you sell your work beyond the borders of your region? Explore these questions and more with a panel of authors whose writing is firmly rooted in Atlantic Canada.

With Shauntay Grant, Theresa Meuse, and Donna Morrissey. Moderated by Sarah Sawler.
