Words on Ice is the kick-off event for The Malahat Review‘s annual Words Thaw literary festival. I’m delighted to be one of the eight writers who will be reading from their work at this event on Friday, March 16.
Since 2013, The Malahat Review has invited dozens of poets, novelists, short fiction writers, and journalists to mark the coming of spring with a symposium celebrating Canadian literature. Held each year at the University of Victoria, the event brings together writers, students, editors, publishers, and others with an interest in creative writing for a weekend of readings, panel discussions, workshops, and socializing. It’s always stimulating and inspiring.
Words on Ice will be held in Room 105 in the University of Victoria’s Harry Hickman Building. Tickets are $10 ($5 for students) at the door, and they include a complimentary copy of the Malahat‘s Autumn 2017 issue.
