The inaugural Forum on literary creation in Québec will run from May 6 to 8 at Grande Bibliothèque de Montréal.
“For three days, writers, storytellers, producers, presenters, and representatives from various associations, groups, periodicals, publishers, bookstores, and government partners […] will come together to identify and discuss main issues and current challenges, determine approaches, and put forward recommendations with a view to supporting the evolution and development of literary creation and storytelling,” notes event Chief Executive Officer Yvan Gauthier.
Themes such as the diversification of practices, the challenges posed by the digital age, and creators' living standards will be discussed.
The Forum will open with a roundtable on issues facing literary creation in Québec today, and a plenary session will be streamed live on May 6 and 8 at: http://webdiffusion.uqam.ca/forumcreationlitteraire/
