Writing Without Compromise

How can writers from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds work ourselves and our stories into the writing and publishing industry without compromise? Facilitated by Annie Zhang, this workshop will unpack the complications of navigating language and identity in a hostile literary environment, empowering writers not to yield. Attendees will gain essential industry insights, participate in writing exercises and critical discussion, and share and connect with fellow writers in a safe space.

This event is presented in partnership with Merri-bek Libraries and Arts Merri-bek.
