Magazine Programming

September 25, 2012

In addition to the bountiful book programming at The Word On The Street, there is also plenty of magazine programming to explore, including readings from literary magazine contributors, advice from experts, and more!

This year’s line-up of exciting magazine programming begins at Carnegie Centre on Saturday, September 29, with readings from Megaphone contributors. It then continues on Sunday at Library Square with readings and presentations in the Poetry Tent, Authors Tent, and Magazine Life Tent.

Be sure to drop by the Poetry Tent on Hamilton Street for readings from Malahat Review contributors Ben Rawluk, Russell Thornton, Rachel Rose, and Bren Simmers. Readings from Room Magazine contributors Carol Shillibeer, Fiona Tinwei Lam, Crystal Sikma, and Katherine Poyner-Del Vento will follow.

The Authors Tent will also host some excellent magazine readings, including subTerrain contributors Barbara Stowe and Madeline Sonik, and PRISM international contributors Yasuko Thanh and Katie Fritz.

For a full day of magazine programming, check out the Magazine Life Tent! Learn about “Kale – The Easy to Grow Superfood” from BC Home & Garden contributor Sharon Hanna; how to “Make Your Home Magazine Beautiful” from Western Living‘s lifestyle and fashion stylist Nicole Sjostedt; and about “Healthy Eating on a Budget” from Health Action Magazine contributor Sondi Bruner. There will also be a discussion of the Sea Legs pinhole photography workshop conducted by Sad Mag and QMunity with queer youth; readings from Room Readers’ Choice Award semifinalists, as well as EVENT contributors Cathleen With and Evelyn Lau; and panel discussions including “There Is No ‘I’ in Reporter,” and Queer Poetics with Poetry Is Dead.

Full descriptions for all magazine programming can be found on our website or in the festival program guide.
