Magazine ProgrammingSeptember 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.
