The Panelist’s choices for the Quebec Writers Federation June 2 Schmoozapalooza! – with the texts themselves – are now online at http://qwf.org/events/qwfreads.html. Read them all before coming to the event (details below), and be prepared to help shape English Quebec’s literary history… a little.
The next Quebec Writers’ Federation Schmoozapalooza! invites you to help choose the best poem or short story by a Quebec English-language writer!
Six short but stellar works of literature will be championed by two panels of well-known writers, and your voice can be heard, too!
Each poem and short story will be posted at http://www.qwf.org from Friday, May 16 until the evening of the event, Monday, June 2, so you can read them all before you arrive. Paragraphe Bookstore will be onsite to sell the books, so come prepared to boost your favourite author’s royalties!
The evening will be hosted by CBC Radio Noon’s Anne Lagacé Dowson.
And our celebrity panelists are…
For Poetry: Stephanie Bolster, Geoffrey Cook, and Catherine Kidd
For Short Stories: Ami Sands Brodoff, Tess Fragoulis, and Neil Smith.
WHEN: 6:30 p.m. on Monday, June 2
WHERE: Volver Café, 5604 avenue du Parc, Montreal, (just above Saint-Viateur)
Admission is free, but please come with an appetite for food and drink, as well as literature and schmoozing.
