Readings and Conversations from UBC Creative Writing

Thursday, October 18
6:00pm - 7:15pm
Revue Stage

1601 Johnston St, Vancouver

In a dynamic interplay between established and emerging writers, UBC faculty and students engage in a series of paired readings and conversations. Faculty work talks to student work. Student work talks back. They talk across genres. They talk over time. In addition to these linked readings, the pairs engage in conversations about working together. How does work connect them? Why is the university a great place for an aspiring writer? What place does our work have in building and rebuilding communities? Join us as we talk work.

This event will feature the following faculty and students: Alix Ohlin and Jasmine SealyTimothy Taylor and Shazia Hafiz Ramji, and Keith Maillard and Andrea Bennett.

Ian Williams is a Canadian poet and fiction writer and judge for the 2018 Griffin Poetry Prize.

Presented in collaboration with UBC Creative Writing.
